The Budgetary Impact of Defense Expenditures in the Middle East
MetadataShow full item record
This paper attempts to examine the relationship between defence spending and budgetary allocation in twelve Middle Eastern and North African/Mediterranean countries. The impact of increases in defence spending on the budget deficit is analysed to find if there is any trade-off between spending on defence and other spending categories. The paper also tests if budgetary patterns involving defence vary by country group.
