it's been years since taking an econ course, unfortunately. what's the bennies of having a highly leveraged country? I know that for companies it certainly introduces a greater level of business and financial risk, and often leads to a decrease in outside investment.... so... knowing that running the country is not like running a business, how can being greatly leveraged possibly be a good thing?
And, if the military is 1/3 of the US budget, when does the vast amount of $ being put into the military become "too much"? Or will it ever, considering how much profit our private sector gains from warfare? (honest question - not baiting)
