Abstract:

This study surveys the models of the determinates of military expenditure and then specifies a model for the determinants of military expenditure in Africa and tests it by time series, cross section and pooled cross-section time series data for thirteen least-developed sub-Sahara African countries. The result of the analysis shows that military spending in this sample, is determined mainly by strategic considerations rather than by pure economic conditions.
