Depressing Numbers

If you are into depressing numbers . . .

According to Joseph Stiglitz:
The total costs of the war, including the budgetary, social and macroeconomic costs, are likely to exceed $2 trillion.

Says Nicholas Kristof:
Just to put that $2 trillion in perspective, it is four times the additional cost needed to provide health insurance for all uninsured Americans for the next decade.
