Abstract : If, during the next decade, the United States should decide to spend more than it does now on defense and foreign military and economic aid, how much of the increase could come from fuller use of then-existing capacity, rather than from lower consumption expenditure. This paper tries to answer that question for the national economy, for manufacturing as a whole, and for individual industries upon which defense and foreign aid procurement rely heavily. (Author)
