  • Do Oil Exports Fuel Defense Spending?

    February 17, 2010

    Authored by Dr. Clayton K. S. Chun.
    Rising oil prices facilitate the acquisition of greater resources and perhaps economic development. But oil revenues can also drive a government to finance massive military equipment purchases like Saudi Arabia did in 1979. The nature of governments that rely on raw material extraction and long-term development of military programs may affect how their current and future spending occurs regardless of oil prices. How nations decide to use their national wealth helps explain some of the perennial problems facing oil and commodity exporting nations and provides insights into their relations with other countries.

    The author examines Army Reserve and National Guard enlisted retention patterns from 1995-2002. This study provides a necessary background to compare retention patterns in the past from those of today. Reserve component leadership could then assess their personnel retention efforts to adjust appropriate public policies to improve their force structure.
