Thanks to Greg Mankiw for the pointer via The Informed Reader.

First peculiar paragraph I read this morning:

"Economic growth imposes a hectic form of life, producing overwork, stress, nervous depression, cardiovascular disease and, according to some, even the development of cancer."

I'm not an economist so I admit to only lurking over at Greg Mankiw's blog, but this was something.
Thinking of economic growth in relation to concrete disease is not something you hear daily.
