The phenomenon of violence is rooted in the very origins of mankind. According to the research of this book, violence is intrinsically linked to the demand for domination, the search for resources in order to survive (i.e. scarcity of resources), exploitation, power, culture, conflict of interests, domination, social status quo, and cohesion. Many scientists try to evaluate violence from different research perspectives, including sociology, history, political science, psychology, economics, and anthropology. In our book, we define violence as a violent action by an individual or group of individuals in pursuit of material, political or other benefits. The economics of violence is based on evaluating the effects of violence on the final economic performance of a society. Basically, the economics of violence includes five topics, namely domestic violence, terrorism, war, border problems, and reunification. The economics of violence is an integral part of economics. In fact, there are many studies that seek to evaluate the economic costs and benefits of violence for society as a whole. In our case, we try to provide a more comprehensive and systematic analysis of the economics of violence. To do so, we use alternative quantitative and qualitative analytical tools to closely evaluate closely the impact of violence on economic performance.
