News Iron Triangles

  1. Oct 19, 2004 #1
    Can anyone give me an example of an iron triangle (who the key players are) that is not related to agriculture, the tobacco industry, or healthcare (like social security)?

    Any good sites with more info on this?

    Only example of an iron triangle I can think of is a battle in the Korean War.

    How about the Senate/House & Pentagon's relationships with Defense Contractors (like Boeing and Lockheed-Martin) ?

    What public policies has the second one influenced?

    Can we get a clear definition of Iron Triangle?

    Also, if anyone is siting select company involvements in government, especially military & infrastructure, please also include which other companies have the size, experience, and financial resources to accomplish the tasks of such companies.

    In the above example these companies would be Boeing & Lockheed/Martin.
