Abstract : The research in this area covered a wide range of postattack economic feasibility problems. Comparative analysis of industrial and population survival rates, specific industry studies, and input-output calculations are the major studies, and input-output calculations are the major techniques employed. In the majority of the research, it is concluded that economic recovery is possible after most attacks. The input-output results tend to indicate a postattack standard of living not much below the preattack level. (Author)
