Global peace is deteriorating as the economic impact of national and international violence escalates to $14.3 trillion (R178 trillion) – up significantly from a cost of $9.8 trillion in 2014.

These are the findings of the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) Global Peace Index, which puts the total cost of violence to the global economy at 13.4% of global GDP (from 11.3% in 2014).

The biggest global contributors to this violence bill come from military spending ($3 trillion) and internal security spending ($1.3 trillion), as well as losses from crime and interpersonal violence ($2 trillion) and losses from conflicts ($817 billion).

The total economic impact of violence containment in South Africa is $66.7 billion – or $1,258 per person

 

Be fore you go read the link - 

Which county do you think is the most peaceful?

And which rates the worst? 

I would think that by next year America would have shifted a few notches to the violent side..

 

Will the violence subside or escalate if (when) Trump is elected?  Alternatively what will happen if HRC aka the Clingon-women is elected?
