An International perspective on health inequalities in rich countries
Why are babies today still several times more likely to die in their first year of life in the most unequal of US states as compared to the most equitable of European or Asian countries? Why is life expectancy so closely correlated to levels of economic inequality? Why is older-age mortality currently improving in Norway, Finland and Japan, but reducing in the USA and UK? And how might living with great inequality, uncertainty and precarity influence our mental health? This talk presents some evidence and gives some suggestions.
