Abstract:

The goal of the project is the development of forecasting techniques to the point where alternative United States policies towards specific countries can be unambiguously ordered with respect to their utility in light of certain U.S. national objectives. As a means for attaining that goal, complex simulations of five Middle Eastern countries are being developed. In order to be in a position to evaluate the effectiveness of alternative U.S. policies toward these countries, it must be known how the five Middle Eastern countries can be reasonably expected to behave.
