Abstract : The Institute for Defense Analyses prepared this paper for the Defense Conversion Commission to provide an assessment of the economic effects of the defense budget drawdown. Using economic simulation models, we estimate the potential long-run economic benefits, and the short-run transitional costs, of the planned budget cuts. We present several cases showing how the results depend on alternative policies for spending the peace dividend.
