Stability versus first strike costs during deep reductions

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Reducing missile forces ultimately increases stability. However, for vulnerable forces, that increase is accompanied by an increase in first strike costs, which would disincentivize force reductions. For survivable forces there is a useful region in which weapon reductions could increase stability while reducing first strike costs.
