Peterson Institute for International Economics Council on Foreign Relations Home Hoover Institution What Have We Done Wrong/Right in the War on Terror There's a terrific piece in the National Journal today, adding up the costs of the "war on terror" and pointing out that unlike some other costly wars in American history, this one has produced almost no economic benefits. That is, unless you think people standing in TSA lines are using those idle minutes (hours?) to dream up lots of innovative new ideas that will fire up the U.S. economy. I rather doubt it. If we had a rational discourse on this subject, it ought to provoke two questions. First, how did we get into this mess in the first place? The second question would be: which responses to 9/11 have worked well, and which policies have proven to be costly failures? That is how a mature great power would deal with the vast and costly response that began on 9/11: it would try to learn the right lessons from the past decade so that it did better the next time it faced an unexpected challenge.
