Like what the title suggest. How could the Dominion War not effect the economy of United Federation of Planets?
First, what happen to a war? specially in a galactic war like that?
Planetary bombardment, convoy Interception, mass killing, Mass conscription, etc, etc, etc. And all of them effect the economy of the participant of war. Specially when the Federation is in the losing side. Although they haven't currency, but they still need resource. And resource is the most expensive things in a war.
So even with the Federation win at the end of the war, shouldn't the fight effect their economy?
What do you think?
