Conclusion

The military needs of every country depend upon their geographical importance. But a country can only meet its needs when it has enough resources. The success of the government lies in generating enough resources it needs with its best policies. That way, a country with a good economy can easily buy the defense equipment it needs. Another major stimulus for countries to spend on their defense budgets more is competition from rivals.
