Here in the U.S., the Anxiety and Depression Association of America estimates that anxiety affects 40 million adults – that’s 18% of the entire population. Anxiety is now the most common mental illness in the country.

Product innovation oriented around anxiety (encompassing stress, mood, and sleep) spans nearly 30 different categories, including chocolate, yogurt, air fresheners, fabric conditioners, and skincare.

The more products we buy to treat anxiety, the more we’ll think about our anxiety…  And that’s not healthy.” -The Crux

“The oldest generation of Americans remembers the Great Depression. They borrowed reluctantly, saved eagerly, and made the United States the greatest power on Earth….

They disregard the wisdom of the dead, and load up the unborn with debt.” -Bill Bonner
