Resource-Based View of Conflict
Each side of a conflict is nothing more than a collection of people and resources, all being used to accomplish a single goal. The decisions that each side makes, and the very progression of the war itself, are all the result of the relative types and volumes of resources available and how they are utilized. There are very robust equations that predict the progression of conflict, and by applying the methods described in this book to control the manner in which the opposition utilizes their resources, wars can be won without every actually fighting. In fact, wars can be prevented before opposition forces even have a chance to form. This chapter is the culmination of all things in this book.
