Abstract: This study theoretically and empirically tests the relationship between military spending and social spending in Egypt using data from 1987–2005. The theoretical results show that the crowding-out of social spending is ambiguous, unless the government is fully allocating its tax receipts to the military. The crowding-out of social spending by military spending lacks theoretical and empirical justification.
