Arms reduction and global reconstruction: Can tanks be beaten into tractors? [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 17 (1):1 - 5 (1998)
The paper suggests that some of the preconditions for peace may have a better chance of being fulfilled in the 1990's than they had previously during this century of wars and other bloody upheavals. Most importantly, it highlights the fact (through giving examples) that business can use the sophisticated technology developed for arms manufacture for the production of consumer goods; so that the argument that industries will fail and employees lose their jobs if there is global arms reduction no longer holds. Ways of dampening demand for arms are also discussed.
