War's Economic Effects

An 8 page paper discussing the effects of war on the national economy. Though the "typical" response to wartime activity is that the national economy improves, this is no typical situation.

The economy had been teetering on the brink of recession simply as part of the classic business cycle, and the terrorist attacks likely pushed it over the edge.

War Stimulates Economy

The costs of war almost always increase the budget deficit and spur a downturn in the economy. Short, well-run wars such as World War II and the first Gulf War, provide a springboard for economic growth after completion because budgeted capital, earmarked and just joining the war effort, is suddenly thrust back into the normal business sector.
