Description

This 28th edition of World Military Expenditures and Arms Transfers (WMEAT) is the second published by the Department of State following the integration with the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, the previous publisher. The report covers the years 1989 through 1999 - that is, the end of the Cold War and its aftermath.

The report shows that military spending worldwide reached a low point in its post-Cold War decline in 1996 and could now be moving on an upward path. The arms trade bottomed out in 1994, and is again climbing - particularly in arms imported by developed countries. The world's armed forces have continued to contract, especially in developed countries, while those of developing countries have nearly leveled off.

Besides such overall trends, the report tracks military development sin all the countries and regions of the world. Military spending in East Asia, South America, South Asia, and Africa, for example, has been growing throughout the late 1990's. Arms imports were rising in nine of the report's thirteen regions.

The report combines military and economic indicators to produce relative indicators and ranks all the world's countries by them. Taken together, these indicators and rankings provide informative comparisons among countries and a wide context for analysis.

The uncertainties of the future with respect to international security and military developments around the world behoove us to keep a weather eye on the trends, so as to better prepare for the unknown.
