AbstractFor this study, data-tables of the following authors were compiled: Walter G. Hoffmann, Jörg Beutenmüller, Lutz Koellner, Carol Bielefeld, and Klaus Detlef Tiepelmann future. The sources, as well as the summary table, provide information about the subject area the respective author was in charge with. (A detailed description is as WORD or PDF file available) Hoffman determined a correlation between GNP and military expenditures of countries with different economic and social systems. The author Beutemueller found in his analysis a comparatively high proportion of military expenditure in the social product, because he summarized military expenditures an a portion of war costs, and he related both to the lower reference of the net gross national product (at factor cost).
