One theory attributes the spike in “deaths of despair” to growing income inequality. There would be fewer suicides, drug overdoses and alcohol-related deaths if incomes were distributed more equally, the argument goes. People take out their frustrations and anger by resorting to self-destructive behavior.
English

It isn’t often that economics raises the most profound questions of human existence, but recent work of economists Anne Case and Angus Deaton (husband and wife, both of Princeton University) comes close. You may recall that a few years ago, Case and Deaton reported the startling finding that the death rates of non-Hispanic middle-aged whites had gotten worse — they were dying younger.

Spanish

Libertad de prensa a la mexicana. Es una manera triste, cínica quizás, de referirse a la interminable matanza de periodistas en el país azteca.  Perpetrada con total impunidad, todo indica que hay una cacería inmisericorde de comunicadores sociales al sur de la frontera.

Freedom of the press Mexican style. It is a sad, even cynical way of referring to the unending slaughter of journalists perpetrated with impunity in our neighbor to the South, where it’s open season on freedom of speech.
