Growth and Civil War
Civil war is obviously damaging for both society and the economy. The social consequences are often difficult to measure: for example, people die as a result of disease and are traumatized through rape or experience as child soldiers. However, the consequences for the economy are much more amenable to quantification, and a key economic research issue has been to try to classify and quantify the economic damage.
