Overview

The Economic Repercussions of Terrorism offers a theoretical overview of the economics of terrorism and provides a detailed evaluation of the costs of terrorist attacks, focusing in particular on the Madrid bombings of 2004, but also including comparisons with 9/11 and the London bombings of 7/7.

Divided into three parts, Part One offers a theoretical overview of the economics of terrorism including an analysis of the roots of terrorism, terrorist financing, the economic consequences of terrorism, and the predatory war economy. Part Two provides an in-depth analysis of the direct and indirect economic costs of terrorist attacks, looking at the security and defence responses, and offering industry sector analyses. Part Three explores the 'other costs' of terrorism, such as the impact of attacks on a government's popularity, and the possibility that terrorists use 'inside information' on attacks to play the stock market.
