The Economic Consequences of the Vietnam War

Synopsis

The consequences of the Vietnam War on the United States' economy is the subject of this work. Campagna provides a chronological study of the war's identifiable costs and benefits, beginning with the pre-war economy of the 1950s, through the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and culminating with Nixon's handling of the war and its aftermath. Both the short-term impact, including contemporary government and administration policies, and the long-term effects are examined, as Campagna describes the change in the basic economic structure that the war has been responsible for.
