With the current US president announcing plans to increase the US defense budget this year in order to rebuild the depleted military of the United States, we may need to take stock of what expenditure has already been spent by the good ole Us of A. The current increase of billions of dollars will take the US even further ahead of the rest of the world in terms of outright military spending. And yes, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, in 2015 US defense spending outstripped that of China, Russia, the UK, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and India combined. While none of us can claim that US defense spending has been anything less than excessive, it has been perhaps an important part of overall world peacekeeping. So just what has been the biggest single expenditure on US military hardware? What has been the most dramatic dollar per man expenditure? Well, with each American tax paying citizen contributing over 30 dollars on the production of it, we attempt to answer that question today, on this episode of the Infographics Show, why does the B2 Bomber cost $2 Billion?
