If Brimelow's four percent figure is accurate (and to my knowledge no one has ever challenged it), then the cost of affirmative action programs would currently be about $540 billion.
But fifteen years have passed since Brimelow made his calculation. Even if the same programs were in place, their impact would be larger today because they have been in existence longer. The economic cost of affirmative action compounds annually, as the growth path of the economy increasingly diverges from its potential.
Bottom line: The misallocation that cost 4 percent of that GDP in 1991 could easily cost 8 percent GDP today .
That implies a $1.1 trillion economic loss from affirmative action programs-a whopping $3,667 taken from every man, woman, and child in the country. "

Does he mention the huge cost to the insurance industry (and thus their customers), both in them being forced to insure nonwhites at a loss and the cost of the damage that nonwhites cause? Also, whites spend a huge amount on gas and commuting or private schools (in addition to paying for public schools) just to have their kids go to white schools.

Think about it, years ago factory workers could find affordable housing next to the factory. Now cities mandate expensive housing to keep the area white. This is all part of the white tax.

Not really. The federal government is the primary employer of Blackie, which is the most unproductive animal ever. The federal government wastes 100s of billions each year, and the underproductivity of Blackie has to figure significantly in that.
Combine this with EEO and AA compliance in the private sector and local governments, and the true cost of employing Blackie for his shitskin becomes readily believable in the 100s of billions.
Where I live, the county council passed an ordinance called "The Small Business Government Contracts Ordinance". Ostensibly, it was to help small businesses snag local government contracts. It turned out that it was a thinly veiled program to award contracts to nog and spic-owned companies.
The requirements to qualify for this program were laughably low, yet the nogs and spics complained that they were too tough for them to meet. The ordinance was re-written, lots of nog and spics qualified for it, and it turned into a disaster. Every single county project that contracted with the nog and spic businesses ended up either being way behind schedule and/or being over budget. The nogs and spics were entirely incompetent.
