The Political Economy of Military Spending in the United States

By Alex Mintz | Go to book overview

US defense planners, should be the guiding hand which directs these choices. While we are partial to the HOBA estimates, we recognize that other researchers may opt for a different set based upon each’s conception of ‘plausibility.’ Finally, throughout this chapter we have suggested that the quality and nature of one’s empirical inferences will, in part, be a function of the data one employs. The inability of many researchers to find a reaction between US and Soviet military spending may be less the product of conscious choices by policy makers and more a result of the data choices made by the modeling community.
