Abstract:

The author discusses the impact on the economy of defense spending from the point of view of an economist rather than of a politician. Politicians and political appointees make judgments as to relative worth of social programs and defense programs. He attempts to examine the impact of defense expenditures on the economy in a way that is not biased by any preconceived judgements.
