Military Expenditure and Growth in Less Developed Countries

Saadet Deger and Ronald Smith ()

Journal of Conflict Resolution, 1983, vol. 27, issue 2, 335-353

Abstract: This article analyzes the relationship between military expenditure and economic growth in less developed countries using cross-sectional evidence in a macrostatistical framework. Within the context of a fully specified empirical model it is found that military expenditure has a negative effect on growth and thus retards development. Specification sensitivity analysis is conducted to show that the results are robust.
