The True Cost of Military Equipment Spending: What Else Could the Money Buy?

Since the dawn of mankind we’ve been coming up with
new and creative ways to kill each other – you could argue that it’s
what humans do best. The infographic below takes a look at the amount of
taxpayer money that goes into funding specific military equipment,
ranging from ‘small’ items to the truly gargantuan in price. The graphic
compares the cost of these items to things that the average American
can relate to, such as median income, cost of a college education,
health insurance, or the price of buying a home.
While most people believe that there is a need to
maintain U.S. military supremacy, they also feel that spending by the
Department of Defense is often unjustified. Then, again, our world is
rapidly changing.
