entering a war can create jobs - people gotta make bombs and guns and stuff

also it creates a need for soldiers

There is some what of an economic phenomena with war and its effects on the economy.

For a short amount of time, it can provide a temporary stimulation of the economy. However, past a certain point, which no economist can really agree on where that point is - besides that it is selective for the particular country and its condition at the time - but at that point it started to default.

War doesn't make money for the countries.

It does for oil execs, weapon manufacturers, and the like.

As somebody personally familiar with the industry, pennies. Peace and progress makes FAR more money. You make far more selling an ipad to every villager every few years than u would off the missile that takes the village out.

Thomas Sowell explains the Great Depression Taking all your unemployed and shipping them off to war tends to help your unemployment figures.

But wars only destroy.

That's the reason the US wage their wars abroad.

It costs the other countries money for rebuilding.

Roosevelt's policies and alphabet soup programs did absolutely nothing to help the economy.

In fact, the economy was naturally retaining itself, the Second World War did more than help your unemployment figures. It set a precedent that would effect the future as we now know it. The United States heavily benefited from the Second World War, in that it retained possessions across the world, submitted itself as the new official dominating power of the west, began the Cold War (a huge economic thriller,) and formed the Military Industrial Complex.

I'd argue this war grew America, rather than destroyed it.

He created a lot of unnecessary jobs to make it appear that the economy was getting better. It simply was not.

He forced a labor market, the economy never naturally recovered until the stimulation of the Second World War.

Yeah, Herbert Hoover was great for the Great Depression.

Don't take these economic tidbits from politically motivated partisan economics.

Believe it or not, the planes aren't modified structurally. Most planes in the US that fly into hurricanes are mostly a standard C-130 with additional instrumentation and fuel tanks, but nothing added to the airframe.

It's actually kinda cool, you can fly a normal plane of moderate size through really big storms and come out without any ill effects if you're a good enough pilot.

You can rent police cars for film. You just have to contact your local police department. They usually have a few police cars with blank registration numbers that filmmakers can use for film purposes.
