The three trillion dollar war : the true cost of the Iraq conflict by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )
39 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,738 libraries worldwide
Nobel Prize winner Joseph E. Stiglitz and Harvard professor Linda J. Bilmes cast a spotlight on expense items that have been hidden from the U.S. taxpayer, including not only big-ticket items like replacing military equipment (being used up at six times the peacetime rate) but also the cost of caring for thousands of wounded veterans--for the rest of their lives. Shifting to a global focus, the authors investigate the cost in lives and economic damage within Iraq and the region. Finally, with the chilling precision of an actuary, the authors measure what the U.S. taxpayer's money would have produced if instead it had been invested in the further growth of the U.S. economy.--From

Die wahren Kosten des Krieges : Wirtschaftliche und politische Folgen des Irak-Konflikts by Joseph E Stiglitz( Book )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in German and held by 57 libraries worldwide
Was uns der Irak-Krieg wirklich kostet - eine Abrechnung In seinem neuesten Buch enthüllt der Wirtschaftsnobelpreisträger Joseph Stiglitz gemeinsam mit Linda Bilmes die katastrophalen Folgen des Irak-Kriegs. Dabei deckt er nicht nur die ökonomischen Kosten für die USA und die Welt auf, sondern benennt auch erstmals die langfristigen politischen, sozialen und humanitären Auswirkungen, die erst in den nächsten Jahren und Jahrzehnten sichtbar werden. Der Preis für den Irak-Krieg ist gigantisch, und zwar nicht nur mit Blick auf den hohen Tribut, den Soldaten und Zivilbevölkerung dafür zu zahlen haben. Dieser Konflikt bedeutet auch eine enorme, bisher ungeahnte wirtschaftliche Belastung, und dies nicht nur für den amerikanischen Steuerzahler, sondern für die gesamte Weltwirtschaft. Die verborgenen und langfristigen Kosten wie die Versorgung von Veteranen oder der Wiederaufbau der vom Krieg zerstörten Region wird die ökonomische Kraft der Vereinigten Staaten auf Jahrzehnte schwer beschädigen. Hinzu kommen kaum bezifferbare humanitäre und soziale Auswirkungen. In ihrem ebenso nüchternen wie erschütternden Bericht rechnen Joseph Stiglitz und Linda Bilmes dem amerikanischen Präsidenten vor, welche bislang unterschätzten - oder womöglich verheimlichten - Folgen der Irak-Krieg haben wird. Ihr Buch beweist, dass Bushs Feldzug nicht nur in militärischer Hinsicht sinnlos, sondern auch mit Blick auf seine sozialen und ökonomischen Konsequenzen ein wahres Desaster ist. "Die Leistung der Autoren ist beeindruckend." Welt am Sonntag "Lädt zum Nachdenken ein." Buchhändler heute "Das Buch von Stiglitz und Bilmes dokumentiert das umfassende Scheitern einer Politik, die sich bis heute weigert, die Realität anzuerkennen." Die Zeit

The economic costs of the Iraq War : an appraisal three years after the beginning of the conflict by Linda Bilmes( Book )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
This paper attempts to provide a more complete reckoning of the costs of the Iraq War, using standard economic and accounting/ budgetary frameworks. As of December 30, 2005, total spending for combat and support operations in Iraq is $251bn, and the CBO's estimates put the projected total direct costs at around $500bn. These figures, however, greatly underestimate the War's true costs. We estimate a range of present and future costs, by including expenditures not in the $500bn CBO projection, such as lifetime healthcare and disability payments to returning veterans, replenishment of military hardware, and increased recruitment costs. We then make adjustments to reflect the social costs of the resources deployed, (e.g. reserve pay is less than the opportunity wage and disability pay is less than forgone earnings). Finally, we estimate the effects of the war on the overall performance of the economy. Even taking a conservative approach and assuming all US troops return by 2010, we believe the true costs exceed a trillion dollars. Using the CBO's projection of maintaining troops in Iraq through 2015, the true costs may exceed $2 trillion. In either case, the cost is much larger than the administration's original estimate of $50-$60bn. The costs estimated do not include those borne by other countries, either directly (military expenditures) or indirectly (the increased price of oil). Most importantly, we have not included the costs to Iraq, either in terms of destruction of infrastructure or the loss of lives. These would all clearly raise the costs significantly

Carbon sequestration in the U.S. national parks : a value beyond visitation by Adam Banasiak( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Carbon sequestration is an important ecosystem service provided by protected natural areas. One type of carbon sequestration that has received attention in recent years is vegetative carbon sequestration, which is the sequestration provided through plant growth. While a number of countries have developed estimates of their national vegetative carbon sequestration capacity, no estimate exists for the National Park Service (NPS) administered areas of the United States, 85% of which are vegetated. This paper addresses that knowledge gap. Using federally created, peer-reviewed work on carbon sequestration rates based on a 5-year baseline period (2001-2005) of observed data, NPS boundary data, and landcover types, the study calculates the current tonnage and economic value of vegetative carbon sequestration services on all NPS units located in the continental U.S. Average projected sequestration amounts for the period 2006-2050 are also provided based on modeled data. Using conservative assumptions, we find that at present average annual carbon sequestration on NPS lands amounts to 17.5 million metric tons of CO2, valued at $7 07 million dollars using the current federal interagency working group social cost of carbon damage price of $4 0.45/metric ton. In the future years through 2050, absent any changes in land management (such as invasive species removal or fire management) carbon sequestration is predicted to fall by 31% to an average of 12.0 million metric tons of CO2 sequestered annually, due to factors such as a warming climate and increased fire hazards. Given the benefits to society of avoiding this future loss in carbon sequestration, funding for management actions for the National Park Service may be economically justifiable in order to mitigate this decline, although further research is needed to better understand how specific NPS practices can maintain current carbon sequestration levels
The financial legacy of Iraq and Afghanistan : how wartime spending decisions will constrain future national security budgets by Linda Bilmes( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, taken together, will be the most expensive wars in US history, totaling somewhere between $4 to $6 trillion. This includes long-term medical care and disability compensation for service members, veterans and families, military replenishment and social and economic costs. The largest portion of that bill is yet to be paid. Since 2001, the US has expanded the quality, quantity, availability and eligibility of benefits for military personnel and veterans. This has led to unprecedented growth in the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense budgets. These benefits will increase further over the next 40 years. Additional funds are committed to replacing large quantities of basic equipment used in the wars and to support ongoing diplomatic presence and military assistance in the Iraq and Afghanistan region. The large sums borrowed to finance operations in Iraq and Afghanistan will also impose substantial long-term debt servicing costs. As a consequence of these wartime spending choices, the United States will face constraints in funding investments in personnel and diplomacy, research and development and new military initiatives. The legacy of decisions taken during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars will dominate future federal budgets for decades to come
