    US health progress is badly faltering because of racial, social, and economic disparities, according to many public health specialists, both in the academy and in Washington, D.C. Proponents of this view typically favor major government interventions to reduce these disparities. If the politically correct narrative truly reflected our modern-day realities,America’s “whites” would generally enjoy better health than our “people of color.”

    By one reading, things look pretty good for Americans today: The country is richer than ever before, and the unemployment rate is down by half since the Great Recession. But a closer look shows that something is going seriously wrong. This is the collapse of work - especially among America's men. Political economist Nicholas Eberstadt shows that while "unemployment" has gone down, America's work rate is also lower today than a generation ago - and that the work rate for US men has been spiraling downward for half a century.
