Description:
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?

Only by building fairer societies, they argue, can we ensure a healthy and prosperous future.
