Defense Expenditures and Socio-Economic Development in the Middle East and South Asia: A Factor Analytic Approach

Auther : Robert E. Looney

The purpose of this paper assess the manner in which defense expenditures and socio-economic development has evolved in the Middle East and South Asia over the period since the 1973/74 oil price increases.

While the general scope of the study is one developing countries, attention is focused on seven of the more important nations in the region: Algeria, Egypt, Syria, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and India.

The main findings are that Middle Eastern and Non-Middle Eastern countries differ significantly in the manner in which they form budgetary priorities. In the non-Middle Eastern States, distinct tradeoffs exist between military and social allocations. In the Middle East, no such patterns appear to be present. This phenomenon may account for the pattern of increased rates of literacy associated with expanded military participation in the region.
