В 1961 г. появился термин «военно-промышленный комплекс»

In his farewell address to the nation, former US President Dwight Eisenhower explained that both the nation and the economy had to be ready to protect themselves from the undue impact of the military-industrial complex. The term “military-industrial complex” was caught up and replicated, so those who use it now do not even suspect that they quote the 34th President of the United States. Eisenhower’s words sound particularly funny if you remember that the growing influence of the US military-industrial complex was largely due to his policy from a position of strength. Thus, an unknown comedian is right: “You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.”
