"Looking to save the world trillions of dollars? How about investing in peace and nonviolence? Australia's Institute for Economics and Peace recently released its 2011 Global Peace Index, citing a veritable 'who's who' of peaceful countries. It counted up the savings had the world been at peace: more than $8 trillion last year, and almost $38 trillion over the five years since the index was started. Think of what a country such as the United States -- which does not fare well on the index -- could do with that kind of change." (07/11/11)
