Abstract : The object of the analysis described in this paper is to examine, as a guide to sensible peacetime defense preparations, plausible supplies and demands in the U.S. economy after a nuclear war. The presumptions undertaken for the analysis are that deterrence might fail, that the outcome of a future general war would not necessarily be mutual suicide, that the ability to recover economically remains relevant for defense policy, and that individual industries may differ in importance for this objective.
