Why are less-than-college-educated White men in the US so much less happy and more desperate? In episode 49, Carol Graham from the Brookings Institution and the University of Maryland talks with us about her research into why younger out-of-work men in the United States are so unhappy compared to their counterparts in other places around the world who are arguably struggling much more. Her report, co-authored with Sergio Pinto, “Men without work: Why are they so unhappy in the US compared to other places?” (full PDF) was published on February 12, 2019 by the Brookings Institution.
