The Heterodox Economics workshop on Wednesday 3 May will be an

ECONOMIC COSTS OF THE WAR IN IRAQ

The true economic cost of war includes many components beyond the 
headline military expenditure, such as health care for wounded troops 
and reduced trade due to political instability. The question of the 
economic cost of the current conflict has come back into the headlines 
because of a conference paper presented last week by Linda Bilmes of 
Harvard University and Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz of Columbia 
University.
