Prosper and Live Long

“Globally, the inequality in life expectancy is shrinking. Unfortunately, this effect, which the demographer Nicholas Eberstadt has aptly described as a ‘survival revolution,’ does not apply to our country.” In the end, there’s really only one stat that matters. And in America, that stat differs wildly depending on your income and location. It’s a social and political risk. It’s a moral disaster. From Michael Specter: Life-Expectancy Inequality Grows in America.
