I have no idea what the bold word means (does it mean "VERY MUCH" or does it mean something else perhaps?...not sure if the bold word strengthens or weakens what follows it):

"Extreme events like hurricanes, fires, droughts that have been so clear in recent years –- all of those things are really not adequately accounted for in his analysis," Stiglitz, the Nobel laureate, told AFP.

Hi, Andrew,

I have no idea what the bold word means (does it mean "VERY MUCH" or does it mean something else perhaps?...not sure if the bold word strengthens or weakens what follows it):

You mean "really," not "even," right?

"Really" is the same as "actually" there, and emphasizes "not adequately accounted for."
