Aviation Week Publishes Grundman Opinion, “Under ‘High-Beta’ Trump Presidency, Anything Could Happen”
Writing on inauguration day, Steve Grundman asks, “What does the Trump Administration portend for defense policy? Will it increase the defense budget? Will it change the size, structure, and disposition of military forces? Will it cancel important acquisition programs?”
In the face of what he regards as “abject uncertainty”, Grundman confesses that he has abandoned forecasting in favor of a watch-this-space posture of vigilant discernment of the signposts and metrics he will be following with respect to defense budgets, US force posture, and acquisition policy.
