The military expenditure in the analysis of contemporaneous economists

Abstract : The thesis aims to analyze the relationship between military spending and economic development on the basis of several approaches either theoretical or empirical. This research was proposed to achieve two objectives : the first is the classification of research on the topic of military spending reported to economic development and / or growth for the period from the 1960s and 1970 among the major schools of economic thought, the second, on the contrary, born of the desire to investigate the responses that the literature provided the theoretical modeling and empirical application of military expenditures reported to the growth consisted to conduct critical analysis of the mainstream literature and trying to find answers to unresolved issues and weaknesses identified in the approaches so-called heterodox also providing trails of research for future and further developments. For what concerns the first two objectives, that of classification among the major schools of economic thought, the relevant literature has been divided into two main sections : first, there are works that fall under the neo-classical, secondly, there are the heterodox works. The split between the two sections has been made on the basis of two dimensions : according to the methods used to perform the analysis and depending on the time scale. One of the most important conclusions of the thesis aims at a revaluation of the use of the methodology of input-ouput.
