Johann Hari on How Neoliberalism Drives Depression and Anxiety in the U.S.

The United States is one of the most depressed countries in the world. Could it be because of the country’s adoption of neoliberal economic policies? DN! speaks to Johann Hari, author of a controversial new book, “Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression—and the Unexpected Solutions.” He writes, “Junk food has taken over our diets, and it is making millions of people physically sick. A growing body of scientific evidence suggests that something similar is happening with our minds—that they have become dominated by junk values, and this is making us mentally sick, triggering soaring rates of depression and anxiety.”
