Addiction, Stress, and What I Talk a lot About in One of My Courses

Last term, I taught Economics 349 “The Economics of Social Problems.” In that class we discuss a host of topics, including the inter-relation between stress and addictions (and how these relations are potentially magnified among the poor). Today’s episode of Democracy Now features Dr. Gabor Mate discussing many of these issues. Dr. Mate is best know for his research and books on the relationship between physical and mental health.
