Execrable Ebola

ebolaBeyond the terrible human toll, Ebola is exacting a huge financial cost. By 12/31/2014 Ebola will cost Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone $360 million; 3% of GDP – equivalent to $500 billion here in the US – and all of West Africa $5 billion. Depending on how fast it’s contained, the costs in 2015 range from another $2 billion to $33 billion for all of West Africa. Costs here are de minimus.
