Is the world getting better? If so, why and by how much?
Leandro Prados (@LdelaEscosura/@uc3m) has written a book on this (link below).
A while ago he summarized some of his main findings 👇
#development #inequality #wellbeing #health #econhist
Looking forward to the high policy dialogue and to present on #tax and #SDGs organized by @UNDP_SDGFinance & @AhteshamRKhan at @Columbia with #tax government officials, think tanks and tax scholars @Jayati1609 @PeterHongler @aredonda @Lustarnde @n_pushkareva @JosephEStiglitz
What’s the link between racism, religiosity & sex?
Segregation was defended to prevent inter-racial reproduction.
This is deemed against God’s plan.
This may explain why white Southerners cling to religion: it justifies their racism.
Cue a fertile soil for Pro-Life campaigns.
From our archive: Europeans have grown much taller since 1850.
What does this imply about their well-being?
Bernard Harris (@UniStrathclyde) explains it 👇
#health #heights #progress #wellbeing #development
ICYMI: #Health has improved substantially in Europe, but #inequalities between poor and rich remain.
What can we do about it?
Brigit Toebes (@brigittoebes/@univgroningen) proposes recognizing and enforcing human rights to good health for all.
