Military-Industrial Complex

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Military-Industrial Complex, the percieved comfortable relationship between government and the defense industry, was the phrased used by outgoing American President Dwight D. Eisenhower warning against the dangerous partnership due to the "potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power". The concept rings through today as defense powerhouses continue to grow in influence and governments continue to spend in their march towards war.
