Description
Information
Why did Sweden experience a fall in suicides during its banking crisis? What caused 10 million Russian men to 'disappear' in the 1990s? Why is Greece experiencing rocketing HIV rates? And how did the health of Americans actually improve after the Great Crash?

This shocking, passionate book lays bare the truth about the human cost of financial crises. Backed up by the authors' own groundbreaking research, The Body Economic reveals that, even amid the worst economic disasters, the ways in which governments deal with market turmoil means the difference between life and death. Only by building fairer societies, they argue, can we ensure a healthy and prosperous future.
