National Security is big business

National Security is big business The United States spends the most on national defense, accounting for about a third of the global total.[1] Through most of its history, the young superpower has engaged in some armed conflict or another, so it’s little surprise that its military readiness is a top priority. The big bills for the country’s defense will come from ongoing efforts to modernize conventional and nuclear weapons ranging from missiles, submarines and drones wrapped with services like mission support, information technology and consulting. While defense contractors can be the beneficiaries of the U.S. government’s massive defense spending, pegged north of $600 billion, they are also catching the fallout of rising tensions surrounding Russia, the Middle East, and Asia, where military expenditures have largely grown over the years. </br></br><b>Modern warfare in numbers </b> </br>-Total arms sales among the world’s 100 largest defense contractors topped $398 billion in 2017 after climbing for the third consecutive year.[2] </br>-The proposed federal budget for fiscal year 2020 that included $750 billion for national defense represents about a 5 percent increase over what Congress approved for fiscal year 2019. </br>-The Trump administration has called for Space Force as the sixth branch of the U.S. military that is envisioned to engage in space warfare.
