Abstract:

This thesis is a historical analysis of Department of Defense Budget trends, requests, and justifications for the period FY52 - FY84. Changes in GNP from year to year are compared to DoD outlay changes during this period to show the net change in DoD budget performance with respect to the wealth of the nation. Budget justifications are then analyzed for select years to determine if there is a trend in the different types of justifications advocated. This analysis determies how the posture of defense, its justifications, and surrounding environment are related with respect to the relative success of the budget submission.
