dc.description.abstractThe trends and consequences of terrorist activities are often captured by counting the numberof incidents and casualties. More recently, the effects of terrorist acts on various aspects of theeconomy have been analyzed. These costs are surveyed and put in perspective. As economicconsequences are only a part of the overall costs of terrorism, possible approaches forestimating the utility losses of the people affected are discussed. Results using the lifesatisfaction approach, in which individual utility is approximated by self-reported subjectivewell-being, suggest that people's utility losses may far exceed the purely economicconsequences.en_US
