Life expectancy is a key indicator of our health and wellbeing. Across most OECD countries in the last 10 years, life expectancy has been stalling – and stalling most in the US and the UK.
In the latest episode of the Health Foundation podcast series, Jennifer Dixon (Chief Executive) is joined by two expert guests to discuss this trend:
- Professor Sir Angus Deaton, Co-author of Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism, and Emeritus Professor of Economics at Princeton University – awarded the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2015
- Sarah O’Connor, Employment Columnist for the Financial Times, who regularly highlights the conditions of low-paid workers in the UK.
