In my opinion, Military conscription is economically favorable, because the duties and responsibilities of our personnel in uniform have changed so much as to make it more favorable to have a draft than to continue on paying large corporate entities enormous sums of money to do the jobs that grunts and squibs used to do for room and board and a gun.
We can save money on recruiters. Blah blah blah blah blah blah a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z now I know may abc's. Fyi most of this is space filler.
The military draft, regardless of its its morality, is an element of national security rather than economics. The purpose of the draft is to call upon all eligible males over 18 years old to fight a war in times of crisis, not necessarily to allow for better economic opportunities or economic growth. Therefore, it is not necessarily economicly favorable.
