- Eye Opening
- Concrete Examples
In the fairy-tale version of America, life just keeps getting better. But prominent economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton have been poking a hole in that story. In 2015, they reported that US life expectancies and mortality rates had taken an unexpected turn for the worse. Now Case and Deaton further delve into those initial findings, and they conclude that the financial setbacks wrought by globalization have metastasized into health woes and social problems. The authors describe a bleak divide in US society that should concern all Americans.
