Slavery Reparations Could Cost Up to $14 Trillion, According to New Calculation

Prologue:

 Article du Newsweek destiné à ceux qui ne savent pas comment pourraient être calculées les Réparations financières dues par les pays européens ayant pratiqué la réduction en esclavage de millions d'Africains dans les Amériques, très précis sur la question. Rien que les Etats-Unis pour la période de leur existence en tant qu' État indépendant esclavagiste de 1776 à 1865, année où ils ont aboli l'esclavage, le chercheur Creamer évalue la dette uniquement pour les heures travaillées non payées et les services effectués à un montant de 5 à 14 mille milliards de dollars!

Vous ne rêvez pas! Et il ne s'agit là pas de se faire payer pour les 100 à 400 millions de victimes des razzias et déportations subies par l'Afrique, il s'agit seulement des salaires impayés des Africains esclavisés qui ont financé la richesse des USA. Souvenez-vous toujours que les propriétaires d'esclaves furent dédommagés lors de l'abolition de l'esclavage...

The Permanent Memorial to Honor the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, in New York City, acknowledges a tragic chapter in the nation's history. Some have argued that reparations for slavery would help heal long-festering racial strife.

In 1865, toward the end of the Civil War, Union Army General William Tecumseh Sherman promised slaves that they'd receive 40 acres and a mule. Land was even set aside, but the promise was recanted by President Andrew Johnson. Ever since, the issue of reparations has come up many times, often fiercely debated. Although most Americans generally don't support reparations, according to University of Connecticut researcher Thomas Craemer, it matters greatly how the question is worded, who would get reparations and in what form.

 For example, the idea of reparations paid in educational benefits are more popular than others, Craemer says. On the other hand, one of the cases often made against reparations is that it'd be impractically difficult to calculate how to fairly take and give so many years after the fact. But in a new paper, published in the journal Social Science Quarterly, Craemer makes the case that there are other examples of historical reparations paid many decades later after "damages" were incurred. He also has come up with what he says is the most economically sound estimate to date of what reparations could cost: between $5.9 trillion and $14.2 trillion.
