Title

Unequal Hopes, Lives, and Lifespans in the USA:  Insights from the New Science of Well-Being

Event Description

Please join Carol Graham, Leo Pasvolsky Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and College Park Professor at the School of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, as she discusses the important role of well-being metrics beyond the traditional economic indicators in identifying and monitoring trends in life satisfaction and hope, and in desperation and misery. She finds, for example, remarkable levels of optimism among poor blacks but deep desperation (and rising pre-mature mortality rates) among poor whites. She highlights policies – including experimental ones – in which hope is an important channel in improving economic outcomes. In the absence of viable solutions to these trends, the costs to society will be more lost lives, lower productivity, increased social fragmentation, and extremist politics with wide ranging implications to the overall economy.
