“Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism” is a groundbreaking account of how the flaws in U.S. capitalism have dire consequences for America’s working class. In this video, Anne Case and Sir Angus Deaton discuss why capitalism is destroying blue-collar America, laying a large part of this at the door step of the U.S. health care system. They also chart a way forward, providing solutions that can rein in capitalism’s excesses. Their book was published March 17 by the Princeton University Press.
