Business Insider quotes Brent Scowcroft Center Visiting Fellow Lisa Aronsson on inefficiencies in NATO spending and what that means for the two percent spending target:
Lisa Aronsson, a visiting fellow at the Atlantic Council, echoed Anthony’s views at Carnegie Europe.
“Planners across NATO understand that the way the alliance spends money is more problematic than the amount spent. The results are duplication, poor readiness, and a lack of deployability,” Aronsson writes. “NATO has tried to shift the emphasis away from the 2 percent target and onto more useful tools to address these problems.”
