Disability in America
The number of Americans receiving disability payments has doubled in the past 15 years. Reporters with Planet Money and This American Life (two podcasts you should absolutely check out), spent six months figuring out why this is happening and what it means. 14 million people get a disability check every month, but because they aren't part of the labor force, they do not count as unemployed. Let me know what you think.
