Abstract

David Stuckler of Oxford University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine tells Peter Goodwin about the findings of his study, just published in the Lancet, showing that increasing economic stresses and loss of employment across a wide range of countries in Europe has increased rates of suicide and murder, while reducing deaths from road traffic accidents, during the last 30 years. One of the study's co-authors, Martin McKee, from the London School, explains what may be causing this and how government policies can reduce the impact of economic crises.
