Video on the Total Costs of War

This video from Good Magazine is over two years old, but I just found it and think it is still instructive. In 2003 Donald Rumsfeld estimated a war with Iraq would cost $60 billion. Five years later at the time this video was created, the cost of Iraq war operations was over 10 times that figure. So what’s behind the ballooning dollar signs? Joseph E. Stiglitz and Linda J. Bilme’s book “The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict” provides the data for this video - breaking down the price tag, from current debts to the unseen costs we’ll be paying for years to come.
