Noah Smith recently had a great article regarding health care and education cost in the US: https://noahpinion.substack.com/p/why-do-education-health-care-and?publication_id=35345&post_id=106662161&isFreemail=false.
Also a small nit, the chart of "8. Attitudes about Racism in America Over Time" has very low resolution.
very interesting and thorough! thx!
the text talks about motherhood as if it is problem that is harming the women, and how societies across the globe are not supporting women so they can finally come back to work where supposedly everyone wants to be.
on a side note i could add, that this is not the "hidden cost", but rather the "missing pay" that women should get for raising the next generation of human beings that will push the economy further ahead in years to come, but instead they're expected to give this extremely valuable work for free.
but the sad part about all those graphs (for me), is the men salary that stays practically unhindered by the fact they are becoming fathers. it seems like the message here is - "men fulfill themselves while women get screwed (Again!)", but i think it could (also) read "women are allowed to fully invest and fulfill themselves through their motherhood, while men lose their chance of a parenting experience to the burden of paying the bills"
"She said that young people suffer the most anxiety because their stories are not yet written."

Cool charts Deb! I particularly like #10... its so hard to see the long view.
And as we look to the future of everything we do we tend to overestimate the short term impact and under estimate the long term one...
Really enjoyed it 😊
Thanks Deb for writing this great article. Super insightful to know interesting trends through graphs.
Wonderful article! These charts really make me think :)
Great read. I also love this chart that demonstrates how we spend our time as we age. https://ourworldindata.org/time-with-others-lifetime
