The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict

The website for the following is: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/factual/starttheweek.shtml

The White House originally estimated the Iraq war would cost 50 billion dollars. However, in his new book, the Nobel Prize-winning economist JOSEPH STIGLITZ puts this figure at three trillion dollars and counting. He asks how the government could have underestimated the cost of the war so spectacularly and what price the US and the world is paying for this miscalculation. The Three Trillion Dollar War: The True Cost of the Iraq Conflict, co-written with Linda Bilmes, is published by Allen Lane.
