Nearly $100bn has been spent by the world’s nine nuclear-armed nations in a single year.

Nuclear warhead stockpiles have reduced since the peak of the Cold War.

But soaring new expenditures beg the questions of why these countries are willing to spend such incredible sums of money on atomic weapons – and whether they are making the world any safer.
