In 2020, there were $20 B in uninsured losses in the US. By 2050, 216 M people will be displaced world wide.
We talk with William Hartung, of Brown University, about the costs of war. There is no accountability for the trillions of dollars spent in Afghanistan, and the Pentagon stopped counting civilian deaths early in the war. The corruption endemic in Afghanistan is mirrored by corruption here in the US.
