Americans are inundated daily with news of violence both at home and abroad. While violence has an enormous impact on the social fabric of the U.S., the full economic toll is not well understood. The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) and the Economists for Peace & Security (EPS) invite you toattend a presentation on the upcoming IEP report on Violence Containment Spending in the United States. The findings present the first comprehensive account of the public and private expenditure on containing and dealing with the consequences of violence.
