How much does war and violence cost the global economy every year? As well as its huge human toll, indirect costs associated with violence cost the world's economy upwards of $14 trillion each year. These costs include lost productivity due to conflict, falling levels of consumption and costs associated with homicides and terrorism. According to the 2015 Global Peace Index, a 10 percent reduction in global violence would inject $1.43 trillion into the global economy - that's over six times the value of Greece's bailout and loans from the IMF, ECB and eurozone combined.
This chart shows the economic impact of violence/conflict to the world economy (in trillion U.S. dollars).
