By Angus Deaton on Paris Innovation Review

Angus Deaton a consacré une partie de ses recherches à un problème négligé, la crise sanitaire qui touche les ouvriers blancs d'âge moyen aux États-Unis. Cette population connaît une forte augmentation de son taux de mortalité, que l'on n’observe pas chez les Afro-Américains, les Hispano-Américains, ou plus généralement dans les autres pays développés. Deaton évoque des morts de désespoir. Ce phénomène trouve sa principale explication dans les transformations du marché du travail, mais il implique de nombreux aspects de la vie. Il n'est pas étranger non plus à la montée du populisme aux États-Unis.
Working class Americans in midlife's mortality rate, after 100 years of declining, has turned the wrong way or at least flattened out. This is not happening to other groups in the US. It’s not happening to Hispanics. It’s not happening to African-Americans. And it’s not happening in any other rich country in the world. Angus Deaton tried to make sense of a trend closely associated with the rise of populism in the US.
