Abstract : A fundamental problem is how to secure funding needed for the hardware and forces essential to our national security. The perceived social and economic costs of defense increases inhibit the public support requisite to sustained defense production. This paper examines the factors of production in terms of their contributions to defense production and the opportunity costs of those contributions. For that examination a framework for increasing defense production by reducing perceived opportunity costs is developed. (Author)
