Military spending not only hurts economic growth as the last press release found, but many interesting corollaries spring from that central finding.

The 8 Indirect Military Economics Corollaries and dates:

Nobel Economics Prize Perversion 12-29-16

Low Level Military Defense 12-5-15

Creating Economic Model, 28 Steps 2-14-15

Military Money and Power 8-10-14

Military States Political Dominance 4-26-14

Banking and the Military 1-2-14

What Does Healthcare Have to Do with Empire? 12-13-13

Why Were Murder and Crime Cut in Half in the Nineties? 12-5-13

 

Nobel Economics Prize Perversion 12-29-16

This shows how economists do not even believe it's possible to develop a science of economics.  I believe that's because they are not engineers, hence ill equipped to handle the math and modeling needed to discover the physics like nature of the deadweight military spending role in the economy.

Low Level Military Defense 12-5-15

This concept shows that all is not lost recognizing that military spending slows down the economic growth rate so much that other nations will catch up and ultimately pass the hegemonic power.  A low level of military defense will ensure a competitive nation for decades to come.  The added benefit of letting the civilian economy lead the way is that the smaller fixed percentage of military economy forces will grow much faster in the low military economy, keeping forces modern and well paid.

Creating Economic Model, 28 Steps 2-14-15

The twenty-eight steps used to develop the economic model over a sixty year period of the American economy show the tools of an engineer and the agility of a model builder, war-game designer, and accountant.  The scope of a politician, scientist, and historian also draws in many useful ways of looking at the world.  Many interdisciplinary worlds were necessary to solve this puzzle.

Military Money and Power 8-10-14

Like the equal and opposite reaction of the physical world, military spending both confers power and draws power to it as an easily allocable part of the national budget.  It is the main glue of national politics in a hegemonic power.

Military States Political Dominance 4-26-14

The reason all US presidents elected during the Cold War came from high military spending states reflects the unique role of military spending in making those who rule over it "more presidential". The one third higher white collar, blue collar, and engineering salaries in military industries and the communities they inhabit offer unique talent and money pools to maintain those communities hold on the federal wealth.

Banking and the Military 1-2-14

We've come a long way from the "Iron Triangle" days of Gordon Adams in 1981.  Even then the banks and military industries had 15% overlapping directorates.  But with financial sector profits ballooning from 0.4% of the economy to 3.5% of the economy in forty years, the marriage of the non productive military and financial industries have lead to unprecedented exploitation of the rest of us.

What Does Healthcare Have to Do with Empire? 12-13-13

Thanks to the "Spirit Level" book of Richard Wilkinson and Kate Puckett in 2010, I can now show that empire (military spending) is more important that even income inequality in leading to the social demise of a nation.  From social mobility to crime to many health care statistics, the empire society develops rampant social decay.

Why Were Murder and Crime Cut in Half in the Nineties? 12-5-13

The sharp drop in crime rates in America after the Cold War ended are a direct result of lowered military spending.  This finding of my seventies, eighties, and nineties research findings explains a phenomena that otherwise cannot be explained by the criminologists.
