I put some responses in with comments. However, I would like to say that I was imprecise in a previous statement...it's a habit of mine. My statement should not have been that deficit spending causes war. Cos is entirely correct that war causes deficit spending, not the other way around. You can check the comments for the full scoop, but I was attempting to say that the ability to deficit spend leads to war. If you can't fund the war, you won't have the war (or you won't be successful at it). If you have easy access to funds, then you can easily create a war machine. If not, it is much harder. It is not deficit spending, but the ability to deficit spend. Check the comments ;-)
