This paper attempts to compare the magnitudes of destruction between natural disasters and socio-economic-political disasters anywhere and anytime in the world. Our research uses a multi-disciplinary approach that includes history, politics, sociology, and economics (Ruiz Estrada, 2011 and 2017). In the methodological discussion, this research suggests the mixing of quantitative and qualitative methods simultaneously to evaluate the different type of disasters as a whole. Subsequently, the paper proposes a new analytical tool: “The General Disasters Final Impact Simulator” (GDFI-Simulator). The GDFI-Simulator was operationalised using the continents of Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania in the 19th and 20th centuries.
