Anne Case and Angus Deaton - Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism
Beginn 18:00 Uhr
Two of the world’s top economists, Case and Deaton in their new book combine their considerable expertise for a detailed exploration of the connections between economic inequality and the current rise in deaths from suicide and substance abuse among white, working-class Americans. Deaton, awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in economics, draws on his lifelong work on human welfare, which has included extensive analyses of the factors that determine health in rich and poor countries. Case, winner of both the prestigious Kenneth J. Arrow Prize in Health Economics and the Cozzarelli Prize, has been recognized for her groundbreaking research on midlife morbidity and mortality, health over the life course, and the relation between economic status and health status in childhood.
