    awful but true: GDP/PIB/BIP GROWS double by disasters & damages: first all the mud & destructions have to cleaned away, then repairs have to be done (and each payment goes into the Gross Domestic Product = “growth”) AND more than just repair money goes into GDP because a) repairs are paid & b) insurance companies have considerable growth as a consequence of the disaster)
