Description

Why do students work more, earn less, and graduate with far more debt than in 1968? Why is overall health in the US declining? The US offers the best quality of life in the world …if you can afford it. Is that conducive to democracy?   

In this presentation, Dr. Lundskow demonstrates the socio-economic and policy reasons why students work more, earn less, and graduate with far more debt than in 1968—the best year to have been a college student. This presentation will also consider why overall health in the US is declining, and one major factor is the unequal quality of our food. Basically, socio-economic policies have made the bad calories the cheapest. So, does the US offer the best quality of life and opportunity in the world? Yes…if you can afford it. Is that conducive to democracy?
