Abstract

Volume 40, no. 1, January 2019 95 elderly residents of the uK. There are several causes for this, including poor health care and adverse economic conditions. This disparity has an economic impact, resulting in a workforce less healthy than other high-income countries. Without universal health care, both our health insurance premiums and the nation’s total health bill suffer from the costs of emergency room visits by the uninsured. besides universal health insurance, other policies would improve our nation’s health, including paid parental leave and subsidies to promote healthier foods. The book is well-but-unobtrusively documented. There is a fifteen-page bibliography. This book would be especially valuable for anyone having busi- ness majors in a class. Adam s mith may not figure in the standard histories of American philosophy. however, the misinterpretations of smith that hill holds up for scrutiny are rampant in American social, political, and economic thought. i t is time for American philosophers and theologians to challenge these misinterpretations. hill shows us how. Hope Draped in Black: Race, Melancholy, and the Agony of Progress. Joseph r. Winters. durham, nc: duke university Press, 2016. 320 pp. $99.95 cloth. $25.95 paperback.
