Abstract : Economic activity can both induce and reduce political violence. We have shown that both insurgents and government respond to rising levels of investment by increasing engagement, with violent consequences. We have explored the economic and social benefits of counterinsurgency by the Philippine military, how it can be optimally conducted, and what the effects are on both combatants and civilians.
