After a century of progress, life expectancy in America is falling, largely driven by "deaths of despair," deaths of white non-Hispanics in midlife from alcoholic liver disease, suicides, and drug overdoses. This mortality is much higher among those without a university degree, and the epidemic is associated with other dysfunctions, including morbidity, social isolation, declining marriage rates and falling participation in the labor force. Professor Sir Angus Deaton and Professor Anne Case argue that an increasingly hostile labor market for those without a BA is a likely root cause of the malaise.
Please join Professor Sir Angus Deaton and Professor Anne Case for this important and timely discussion.
