About the Project
By Vice Chairman’s Staff, Joint Economic Committee
Today, the Social Capital Project released a new video promo for our work on opioids and deaths of despair. The video (embedded below) is narrated by Senator Mike Lee, Vice Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, which houses the Social Capital Project. It describes our previously released map detailing the spread of the opioid crisis, and it plugs forthcoming work from the Project on opioids and "deaths of despair."
