Publisher: United Nations University Press | ISBN: 9280808818 | edition 1995 | PDF | 384 pages | 1,02 mb
Due primarily to the cold war's end, the implosion of Soviet communism and the economic downturns of the last decade, the world is experiencing a steady albeit slow downward trend in global military expenditure. While the politics of military arms reduction is frequently the stuff of headlines, details of related economic ramifications generally are not. Klein is a former Nobel Laureate in Economics and is currently Benjamin Franklin Professor Emeritus at the University of Pennsylvania. Lo is the Senior Academic Officer at the United Nations University, Tokyo. McKibbin is Professor of International Economics, Australian National University, Canberra. Together with 18 contributing authors, they discuss various and complementary economic perspectives on disarmament.
