I think it's already happening. One of my personal beliefs is that this is one of the reasons the USA went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Think of
all the defense contractors, the companies that make weapons, ammo, vehicles, and other military supplies. They must be raking in the money.
Granted, those are not world wars, but it's one of the reasons I think that Iran or North Korea will be attacked eventually. I would have said Iran
in GWB's presidency, but Obama seems to be trying to smooth things over with Iran, so I'd be more inclined to say North Korea is next, now.
The past two world wars saw massive economic growth because of this. However, the first world war was then followed by... wait for it... the Great
Depression. Then WWII jacks up the economy again. I'm not too familiar with financial history after that, but I wouldn't be surprised if somewhere
in there (maybe around the Vietnam War) there was another recession or danger of one.
If you are a completely immoral, sadistic murderer in charge of things, then war is a good way to keep the economy moving every couple of decades. Of
course, the human cost makes this solution completely unreasonable, but it's still the one I think will be used.
