What Can International Trade Theory Say About Conventional Arms Trade?
The motives for the arms trade have always involved economics and politics with shifting relative importance depending on the era. In spite of the body of arms trade research that has spanned a century and has clearly recognized the importance of economic motivations, there has been surpirsingly little application of international trade theory to the arms trade. Our approach is to offer an eclectic mix of trade models, each suited to a particular dimension of the arms trade.
