It's plenty productive as a form of permissible industrial subsidy in a polity infested by neoclassical brain rot. Unfortunately, it is only productive for those countries the armaments are bought for, so it does not improve the customer's ability to pay for such procurement.

Which, of course, was never the point of neoclassical policy prescriptions, which are a pretty transparent game of three-card monte designed to con countries out of their resources and sovereignty and into colonial servitude. It's just a pity the market-fundies believe their own propaganda.

I could think of less flattering comparisons ;-)

And yes, I am getting a little tired of seeing people do the same thing that has blown up three times over the last three generations - one time sufficiently spectacularly that you need nine figures to count the casualties.
