Project Description:
A key long term benefit to DoD policymakers from our work will be the development and wide dissemination of the new Global Economic Interdependence Dataset. These data will provide the DoD with a laboratory within which to run countless analyses to guide defense strategy. The release of the new dataset will benefit the broader community of scholars and practitioners, who may then act as a “force-multiplier” in running thousands of additional analyses with the potential to inform DoD policy.
