For the US, the World War II gave rise to a permanent warfare state fueled by pursuit of world supremacy, a war economy, an emergent national security-state, an empire of military bases. It brought new power relations embedded in a dynamic partnership of corporations, state, and an enlarged military sector. Once the US entered World War II and global conflict intensified, a system of state-directed war mobilization was rapidly developed. The American wartime economic miracle amounted to a state-directed mobilization process never before seen in world history. In the end of the World War II, the US nearly equaled the output of war materials by the Axis powers combined, with 45 percent of the overall federal budget invested in military priorities. The warfare state not only stimulated the American economy, temporarily insulating it from crisis and collapse, but led to its reconstitution on a new footing, both structural and ideological.
