Abstract:

The study deals with the economic effects of a specific series of actions to reduce, consolidate, or terminate activities at military installations in the United States as announced by the Secretary of Defense on November 18, 1964. Actions to terminate or reduce activities at military installations are being undertaken on a continuing basis by the Secretary of Defense. The reference 1964 Announcement, however, was sweeping and dramatic in its implications. Eighty domestic bases were included and the number of civilian positions affected amounted to over 80,000--about four-fifths to be abolished another fifth to be transferred to other installations. The actions portended by the Announcement included the most sweeping series of closures over covered by a single announcement. Because the actions covered by the 1964 Announcement constitute the kind of comprehensive reduction in activities at military bases which might occur under a disarmament agreement, this information is particularly relevant.
