The Peace Economy
The concept of a peace economy emerged in recent years when major world powers stopped fighting and began to work together to address global problems. In a peace economy, war no longer has a market. At the end of the Cold War, the need to produce war-related materials diminished. Powerful countries shifted from a war economy to a peace economy. Defense budgets were cut. The Soviet Union considered what to do with its large nuclear arsenal. World leaders dbated how the economy could be stimulated to ensure peace, and replace defense items and the production of weapons for war (materials, person-power, etc.).
