I've written at least 3 threads with the topic of the $8 trillion in losses occurred because of: 1) The Stock Market Crash of 2000-2002 caused the loss of $5 trillion in the market value of companies from March 2000 to October 2002. Dot-com bubble - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 2) Counting the value of lives lost as well as property damage and lost production of goods and services, losses already exceed $100 billion. Including the loss in stock market wealth ,the market's own estimate arising from expectations of lower corporate profits and higher discount rates for economic volatility -- the price tag approaches $2 trillion. The Cost of September 11 3) FACT: Worst hurricane SEASONS in history wiped out $1 Trillion Did you know the WORST HURRICANE SEASONS..PLURAL..SEASONS IN HISTORY occurred And 4 of the TOP MOST EXPENSIVE ($240 Billion ) hurricanes??? #1 Hurricane Katrina August 2005 Louisiana, the most destructive hurricane in US History caused $200 billion in damage. #3 Hurricane Charley August 13 - 14, 2004 Florida causing $15 billion #4 Hurricane Ivan September 16 - 24, 2004 $14.2 billion in damage #8 Hurricane Frances September 5, 2004 Florida caused $8.9 billion http://www.epicdisasters.com/index.php/site/comments/the_ten_costliest_us_hurricanes/ Total of over $8 trillion in losses ALL written against taxes because of Dot.com/9/11 and worst hurricane SEASONS! FACT BY NOT having the $8 trillion in losses.. $267 billion per year from 2003-2008 would NOT be deducted! A total of $2,500 Trillion in REVENUE that would have been collected if there had been no Dot.com bust, no 9/11 and worst hurricanes seasons in history.
