austerity kills

so...all those in dc peddling this austerity c**p...they are a certain type of murderer.
as scholars of public health and political economy, we have watched aghast as politicians endlessly debate debts and deficits with little regard for the human costs of their decisions. over the past decade, we mined huge data sets from across the globe to understand how economic shocks — from the great depression to the end of the soviet union to the asian financial crisis to the great recession — affect our health. what we’ve found is that people do not inevitably get sick or die because the economy has faltered. fpolicy, it turns out, can be a matter of life or death. - nytimes
