Oh I agree, economic success without ensuring security is a recipe for disaster. Or as they say, a fool and his wealth are soon parted.My answer - Economic factors is one of the foundations of Security but not a guarantee to security. To guarantee security many more things besides the economics are needed.
That is all.
But with a strengthening economy, we can allocate more resources to defence is the point I am making. 1.4% of a $10 trillion economy is much more than 1.4% of a $3 trillion economy.
