Abstract

This paper attempts to compare the magnitudes of destruction between natural disasters and socio-economic-political disasters anywhere and anytime. Therefore, our research is using a multi-disciplinary approach that includes history, politics, sociology, and economics simultaneously (Ruiz Estrada, 2011 and 2017). In the methodological part, this research suggests to mixing of quantitative and qualitative methods simultaneously to evaluate the different type of disasters as a whole. Subsequently, the same paper proposes a new analytical tool is entitled “The General Disasters Final Impact Simulator (GDFI-Simulator).” Finally, the GDFI-Simulator was applied on the African continent, the American continent, the Asian continent, the European continent, and Oceania from the 19th century to the 20th century respectively.
