The Three Trillion Dollar War is a devastating reckoning of the true cost of the Iraq war - quite apart from its tragic human toll - which the Bush administration estimated at $50 billion, but which Stiglitz and Bilmes show underestimates the real figure by approximately six times. The authors expose the gigantic expenses which have so far not been officially accounted for, the cost of caring for thousands of wounded veterans for the rest of their lives. With chilling precision, they calculate what the money spent on the war would have produced had it been further invested in the growth of the economy, in the US and around the world, and in infrastructure building. Stiglitz and Bilmes write in simple language, which makes the details they present, and the sums they add up, all the more disturbing.
