Abstract : A discussion is presented of two sharply contrasting views of the effects of military assistance on development in the recipient countries. One view, referred to as the 'resource diversion' view, is that military assistance diverts resources from economic development. The second position, referred to as the 'resource addition' view, argues that resources provided through military assistance represent additions to the recipient's economic base that are likely to advance its development.
