Abstract:

Two significant events have shaped the current debate over the defense industrial base. The end of the Cold War and the Gulf War. First, our apparent victory in the Cold War signified the end of the threat against which most of our major weapon systems were designed to defeat in an all out conventional or nuclear war. The demise of the threat meant we could reduce the size of our defense budget and shift defense resources into the domestic sector. This is the Peace Dividend. Concurrently, the defense industrial base, and arsenals, would somehow downsize to effectively and efficiently meet existing and future military requirements.
