Estimating the Cost of the Iraq War

My friend Scott Wallsten over at AEI-Brookings has put together a website where you can estimate the present discounted value of Iraq war costs under alternative assumptions about various components (e.g., number of troops killed or injured, and date the US leaves Iraq).

In a nutshell, it seems Larry Lindsey was wrong about the costs of a US-led war in Iraq --- he way underestimated them.

This is a follow-up on a recent paper Scott wrote with Katrina Kosec (about which I posted a while ago).
