Over the past fifteen years, Dr. Harvey Brenner of John Hopkins University has developed reliable computer programs to compare employment and health data from dozens of American cities. His findings show a frightening correlation between joblessness and an increase in mortality from heart attacks, liver disease, suicide and other stress-related ailments. England's Granada Television invited Dr. Brenner to apply his investigative techniques to unemployment in two British cities.
