War economy is the general name of the measures taken by a state to keep its economy alive in times of war. Philippe Le Billon defines this phenomenon as "the regulation of the production, transfer and sharing of resources in order to keep the savagery under control". Most states manage their economy according to a specific plan in times of war. The rationing of certain products and the recruitment of civilians are examples of these measures. In times of war, countries shift most of their domestic economic resources from items that increase the welfare of the people to the production of war products. Therefore, black market and inflation increase in times of war. In other words, in addition to the impoverishment of the public compared to the previous period, access to relatively cheap but preferable goods in previous periods is also restricted. Military units are given priority in the distribution of basic products (food, cleaning, clothing, communication, etc.).
