Manufacturing Possibility: Expanding Resources to Meet Global Challenges, Promote Economic Development, Support Innovation, and Prevent Proliferation
This report highlights the potentially pivotal role of the private sector in helping to translate worldclass weapons expertise into marketable research and successful business enterprise. As many states of the former Soviet Union (FSU) become more stable, the authors argue, there is a unique window of opportunity for spurring business investment in the interest of both economic development and nonproliferation goals. The paper provides a fresh look at how that scientific pool of proliferation concern can be permanently engaged in productive and sustainable employment.
