I’ll be talking to Kevin Milligan, the UBC economist who tweets with such clarity about how our economy works. His research covers topics related to everyday life, like universal childcare, income inequality, and tax fairness. In this episode, we talk about his newest paper on how rich men live eight years longer than poor men in Canada, and why that’s a problem for our public pension system. We look into the challenges of working with a complex data set, and how economists decipher changes in populations over time.
