What you should know about the US opioid crisis
The Brookings Institution

Globalism, Automation, AI and the Information Economy are all swell things. But we keep ignoring that this Brave New World comes at a ‘cost’ in all the underclass folks and “Left Behinds” who’ve had their incomes and communities hollowed out in the process. But even worse, now they’ve also lost Hope and any sense of “meaning’ in their lives, and increasing suicides, foster kids, and opioid dependency aren’t the only signs of their desperation.

So we gotta address this ‘cost’, or it’s only gonna get much worse.
