dc.description.abstractReviews the book, The Body Economic: Why Austerity Kills by David Stuckler and Sanjay Basu (2013). In this book an economist and an epidemiologist explore government responses to financial crises through the lens of health outcomes. They argue that austerity is never the right prescription as it hinders return to growth and causes immense suffering to citizens' health and well-being. Mental health outcomes feature prominently in these analyses. The book is heavily annotated but reads well. Clinical examples lend a particularly poignancy. The statistics presented here will help elevate anecdote to evidence when discussing policy with those that hold power. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
