    Fascinating (particularly the high US spending percentage and the moderate spending of some of the expeditionary small powers like Denmark and Canada).

    I understand that Chinese spending as a percentage of GDP is somewhere in the 1.5-2.5% range, but somehow the American hawks just want to talk about price parity dollars.

    Some of the smaller powers, like Denmark and Canada, probably achieve relatively good results on their low percentages, as they will shop around more and buy more off-the-peg equipment than other countries.
    Others, the UK for example, want to maintain a sizable domestic defence industry covering a broad range of technologies. The UK could get more out of its defence budget, but only at the cost of defence exports and jobs.
