5. If you don't use the bombs, then you don't need to make more bombs

Simple economics of supply and demand, you must create the demand so you can supply the demand.

The military industrial complex has this figured out, why can't they seem to apply the same principle to constructive side of economics, create a demand and then you will have to supply it. Replacing roads and bridges would be a good way to start.
