  What is the MiC?  

Military-Industrial Complex is the phrase used to describe the sometimes-too-cushy relationship between military industry and politics. President Dwight Eisenhower used the phrase in his January 17th, 1961 farewell address as a warning to the American people to not let this relationship go unchecked due to the "potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power". This page attempts to define the MiC as it exists today.

For the period of ten years (2006-2016) this website has catalogued the various contracts given by the United States government to the equally-various players of the defense industry. This page captures the complete list of names - many well-known, others not so much - that represent the hidden face of the Military-Industrial Complex today. While we no longer track this information, this section stands as a testimony to the mighty cost of funding two major wars.
