The following statistics offer a sobering reminder of the reality of the costs of violence–financial, human, physical and emotional.

May we all remember that behind every statistic is a human being.

• A Columbia University study examined the economic returns from investments in six prominent social and emotional learning interventions—from learning and literacy programs to combat aggression and violence; to efforts to promote positive thinking, actions, and self-concepts; to practices that improve problem-solving abilities, capacities to manage emotions, and the very skills that lead to greater student motivation and engagement in their learning.

Their findings are striking: Each of the socially and emotionally focused programs—4R’s, Positive Action, Life Skills Training, Second Step, Responsive Classroom, and Social and Emotional Training (Sweden)—showed significant benefits that exceeded costs.

In fact, the average among the six interventions showed that for every dollar invested, there is a return of more than 11 dollars.

[2014 Global Terrorism Index] • 2013 saw a 61% increase in the number of people killed in terrorist attacks.

Private sector spending on violence containment is conservatively estimated to be $605 billion.

The remaining amount is spent by state and local governments on police, justice, corrections, and other security measures.

The federal government spends more than state or local authorities or the private sector on violence containment spending—over $1.3 trillion, or approximately 9 percent of GDP in 2010.
