Neoliberals’ cruel legacy: “the difference in average life expectancy between poor and wealthy women widened from 3.9 years to 13.6 years.”
Why did America listen to the people who thought we needed “more millionaires and more bankrupts?”

I will happily blame economists for the mess we’re in.

The fact that a field has been so committed to some underlying wrong principles that many of them know are wrong because patronage by the ultra-rich props it up to justify their ludicrous wealth is quite the scam. George Mason and anything coming out of there is the worst.

Did wealthy lifespans increase or did poorer lifespans decrease? (Or both?) - seems yo be important but I can’t access article to confirm.

".. Life expectancy rose for the wealthiest 20 percent of Americans between 1980 and 2010. Over the same three decades, life expectancy declined for the poorest 20 percent of Americans..."

BA doesn't note here economics focused on 'skill-intensive tech change' as primary reason for widening inequality, which was supposed to incentivize human capital investment and thereby correct itself. So, yes, economics was apologetics.

Poor people "deserve" to be poor. Will the apologists also say that poor people deserve to die?
