Outlier Nation: American Health and Economy in Comparative Perspective

This summer, I will work to support Professor Karabel’s research for his upcoming book on American exceptionalism, “Outlier Nation.” The book seeks to evaluate how the United States is so different from other wealthy democracies, why this could be, and the impacts this has on the American people. Throughout the summer, I will continue my past research that specifically focused on the physical and mental health of Americans compared to people in other wealthy democracies and the causes of our poorer overall health. I will also be examining the sources of America’s comparative economic innovativeness and economic dynamism.
