The Three Trillion Dollar War

March 6, 2008 interview with Joseph Stiglitz, co-author of The Three Trillion Dollar War, on the costs of the invasion of Iraq – and the gloomy prospects for the U.S. economy.

There are long range economic consequences for us to which we have already been committed because of this war. If you intend to live in this economy for any length of time, you ought to listen to this interview.

I have been aware of Joseph Stiglitz and his book for quite some time. This is the first time I have actually paid attention to what he is saying. Originally, I thought that there wouldn’t be anything in the book that I didn’t already know. How wrong I was.
