Michael Noonan, the director of FPRI’s program on national security, interviews FPRI Senior Fellow Michael Horowitz about his recent National Bureau of Asian Research piece entitled “How Defense Austerity Will Test U.S. Strategy in Asia.” Horowitz discusses the potential impact that sequestration and defense austerity might have on U.S. defense policy in East Asia and also discusses the consequences of underfunding defense research and development in providing the necessary suite of security capabilities for the current and future operating environment — particular one where anti-access/area denial (A2AD) will be an issue.
