Defense Economics

As discussed in the Art of War, it is important to understand how warfare will affect resources. Here a few passages that highlight this. Strategy must keep in mind the resources that are available and leaders should avoid pyrrhic victories.

“When you engage in actual fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men’s weapons will grow dull and their ardor will be damped. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your strength. Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain.” Art of War, Chapter 2: Waging War

“Hence a wise general makes a point of foraging on the enemy. One cartload of the enemy’s provisions is equivalent to twenty of one’s own, and likewise a single picul of his provender is equivalent to twenty from one’s own store.” Art of War, Chapter 2: Waging War
