Abstract : The great historical productions which recount the details of the hundreds of wars, long and short, insignificant and dramatic, deal primary with the political impact of the outcome and the military significance of the decisions of the war. Seldom said is the economic significance of war, for certainly wars are created more from the events of economy than from the events of strategy. Today we are gaining experience in fighting a different war from others fought in centuries past. Today we are engaged in a standoff of military forces and we engage our enemies in an economic war. Our strength comes from our ability to wage a fighting war, if necessary, as well as an economic war. (Author)
