LSE: Depression Makes The Economy Suffer
The London School of Economics Centre for Economic Performance has published a paper suggesting depression causes massive economic damage and that therapy available for all would pay for itself. Richard Layard writes “There is a mass of suffering which is untreated and imposes severe burdens on the economy”.
It imposes even more severe burdens on the sufferers and it is a great shame that economic argument and not human need is the driver of this thinking. I am sure Mr Layard is driven by human need and suffering and the opportunity to end this. It reveals very deep wounds to our humanity and society that he needs to dress this in economic argument to be heard.
