The Defence Industry

[in 1980]

“The US Department of Defence is the largest planned economy outside the Russian Empire. Its property – plant and equipment, land and inventories of war commodities – amounts to some $202 billion, or about 10% of the assets of the entire American economy”.

– John Papworth in “The End of the American Dream”.  1981

[I wonder how it stands now?]
