This monograph is a collection of empirical and theoretical essays
on the interplay between political regimes, military spending, and
economic growth. Chapter 1 surveys the literature on political
regimes, policies they choose and their economic consequences.
Chapter 2 examines how democracy and conscription may affect the
number of battlefield deaths and the value of a statistical life in
military conflicts. Chapter 3 investigates how arms trade and
military spending may affect economic growth. Chapter 4 examines
the efficiency of political markets and factors influencing
political polarization. Chapter 5 summarizes the findings and
suggests the avenues for future research.
