For this paper there was not available nearly as much empirical materials for analysis and model construction as was the case for the authors’ Guatemala study cited in this paper. However, for developing countries very deficient in data this paper importantly demonstrates how useful results can still be obtained on the possible impacts of reduced military expenditures. (eds.)
