From defense to development? : international perspectives on realizing the peace dividend( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1990's saw worldwide military spending plummet almost 40 per cent. The dividend that this relative peace created became available for projects to achieve clean water, agricultural productivity and education that were intended to promote greater human welfare. The early part of the twenty-first century however, has seen this downward pressure on defense budgets begin to turn around. This impressive book tracks the progress of twelve countries on five continents in moving resources from defense to civilian activity in the 1990's. Based on intensive field research, thanks to its truly international array of contributors, the book addresses each country with an impressive standard of scholarship. This accessible book is written in non-technical language and will be of great use and interest to academics involved with defense economics, defense studies and development studies. It will also prove popular with international development organizations, the defense industry and policy-makers around the world
Dismantling the cold war economy by Ann R Markusen( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For five decades the American economy has devoted some of its best resources to waging the Cold War. By the 1990s, this investment had not only made the United States the world's high-tech cop but had also successfully launched many new industries--computing, chip-based electronics, and satellite communications. But this military-based industrial policy has come at a high social and economic price, as the authors demonstrate in the first comprehensive reassessment of the military-industrial complex in twenty years. Based on extensive new data (much hitherto unpublished) and on interviews with defense industry executives, Pentagon officials, and community and union leaders, this book shows in disturbing detail how Cold War technologies have distorted and drained the economy. Military-led industrial policy has misfocused our research efforts, displaced more jobs than were created, and weakened our ability to compete effectively in world markets. The authors argue that a reversal in the long downward slide of the American economy will require a concerted effort at economic conversion. To counter the long-time military domination of science and technology development, they outline a national "needs-driven" science and technology policy to restore standards of living and industrial vitality. To overcome the "wall of separation" between military-industrial culture and the rest of American life, they propose an integrated economic development strategy designed to break addiction to Pentagon patronage. Here is a blunt and meticulously researched critique of the bitter economic fruits of the Cold War--and a plan for a cure
