Larry Summers: Global security and pandemic risk

The global mortality rate from the flu pandemic of 1918 was 7000 times as large as from the recent Ebola outbreak.

AIDS profoundly changed the human experience in Africa.

No one knows the probability of a recurrence of these kinds of disasters.
History is too short to permit reliable estimates and in any event conditions are rapidly changing because of scientific improvements on the one hand, and huge increases in global interconnection on the other.
