dc.description.abstract This dissertation consists of three essays that examine the interplay between private and public actors in the evolution, development, and implementation of this technology. My work provides a political economy analysis of the drone industry through public choice economics. This serves as a clear demonstration of how the incentives faced by various private and public actors and the interactions between these groups work to influence decisions regarding the evolution of national defense and policies surrounding military technologies.
