|While a healthy, private defense sector is in Aloria's national interests, it is also in Aloria's national interests to maintain a state defense industry. This is so because the nature of the private market is unpredictable. If a major defense contractor goes out of business, it is important, during the downtime from when that contractor goes under to when a new contractor can take its place, that Aloria's defense needs be met. For that reason, the Democratic Rationalists propose DASI, to establish a national defense industry to act as a buffer against the vagueries of the private market.|
Old value:: Defence industries are privately owned and not subsidised.
Current: Defence industries are privately owned but subsidised by the state.
Proposed: The state owns national defence industries but these exist alongside privately owned defence industries.
