Improving on our body of tactical knowledge, Economics of Modern Warfare is an analysis of the potential for Adam Smith's proverbial Invisible Hand of the Market to effectively submit enemy combatants while severely reducing the amount of risk and tragedy associated with war. By referring to a handful of battles throughout history, many previously dismissed as tactical anomalies, a new form of military strategy is derived through the manipulation of supplies, capital, and markets. This proof-of-concept book combines economic theory with applied analyses of military successes and failures, explaining them simply for audiences of all levels of interest in military studies, economics, or history.

About the Author:

Michael Taillard received his PhD of financial economics in 2011 and has an academic background that includes a master's degree in international finance with a dual concentration in international management, as well as a bachelor's degree in international economics, an associate's degree in business, and military training in transportation logistics. After spending several years as a university economics instructor he decided to leave and become a freelance research experimentalist. His work so far includes economic research projects for The American Red Cross, theoretical study for the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM), and consulting panels given at horror movie industry expos who've since dubbed him 'The Econozombist' for his work helping to build an accurate representation of the world after a zombie apocalypse. He currently owns and operates OPII Schools, an award-winning national private school and tutoring company designed as a philanthropic experiment in macroeconomic cash flows as a form of urban renewal.

Review:

"This exciting new volume notes that economic manipulation has been used in combat for millennia, but argues that the innovative strategists who have utilized such economic tools have not realized the implications of their actions. The economic dimensions of conflict are important so this will be a very useful book." - Ron P. Smith, Birkbeck College, London
