Abstract

What are the relationships between war and economic activity? When do either public or private economic requirements cause war? Are warlike conflicts rational from an economic point of view? What is the best strategy to wage them? What are the economic consequences of war? How much do wars really cost? Who really gains from them? Can war or forceful rearmament contribute to resolving economic crises?
