Abstract

The paper provides an extremely simple model of the interaction of international and internal conflicts. Specifically, it analyzes the situation when investments in both domestic and international wars are complementary. Therefore it predicts a possibility of inefficiently high investments in international conflict due to the threat of the domestic revolution or - in a modified setting - of purely wasteful investments in the military capacity without any international war at all. The results are debated from the point of view of several cases of military conflicts caused by he domestic regime stability considerations.
