Abstract:

The study examines the mix of fiscal programs on the expenditure side of the budget which might be used to compensate for the reduction in aggregate demand accompanying a reduction in defense spending. The question to be examined is this In the event of major arms control measures or a disarmament agreement which resulted in a substantially lower level of defense expenditures by the federal government, how rapidly could these funds be channeled into non-defense projects and what would be the timing of their impact on aggregate demand. The answer to this question is discussed as depending on the lag structure in the expenditure process and the actual non-defense programs chosen. Author
