Across the United States, austerity kills higher education—by cutting public funding and raising tuition.

In Chicago, austerity kills schools—more than 50 of them, overwhelmingly in black neighborhoods.

And in Bulgaria, austerity kills people—at least six men have set themselves alight in apparent protests against the country’s economic plight, and there are also daily reports of people hanging themselves, jumping from bridges and high buildings, and throwing themselves under trains.

Austerity is much more than a morality play. Austerity kills.
