Abstract:

The report shows that world military expenditures, inflated by further increases in prices, reached a record peak of 204,000,000,000 in 1970. The increase in military spending over the previous year was the smallest in recent years and relatively less than the apparent price rise--a hopeful sign that the sharp upward trend of the 1960s has been blunted.
