Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think this approach tends to lead to the sort of argument that goes on in the Middle East

There are no "arguments" in the Middle East. People are at war over land and sovereignty claims, conflicts fomented by you-know-who.

Demand for restitution of unpaid labor by ADOS from US gov (not you personally, geddit?) is not analogous to war in the ME.

First, ADOS are US citizens and the principle conflict behind paying off that big ass torts claim is choosing between Ideal Victims or DOD budget.

I repeat: There is a significant body of research on economic losses --in aggregate-- attributed to slave labor, Reconstruction-era False Claims, peonage labor, land seizures, and systematic denial of public services, financing, and foreclosures by US agencies (VA, SSA, FHA, etc) by race --collated.

Besides, the evidence is all around you, FFS.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

An off-line source has pointed me to an example of such a calculation.
