How Our Days turned Numbered tells a narrative of company tradition remaking American culture--a tale of intellectuals and pros in and round insurance firms who reimagined american citizens' lives via numbers and taught traditional american citizens to do a similar. Making participants statistical didn't take place simply. Legislative battles raged over the propriety of discriminating by way of race or of smoothing away the results of capitalism's fluctuations on contributors. in the meantime, debates inside of businesses set medical professionals opposed to actuaries and brokers, leading to tricky, secretive platforms of surveillance and calculation.

Dan Bouk finds how, in a bit over part a century, insurers laid the foundation for the much-quantified, risk-infused international that we are living in this day. to appreciate how the monetary international shapes smooth our bodies, how probability tests can perpetuate inequalities of race or intercourse, and the way the quantification and claims of danger on every one folks keep growing, we needs to take heavily the historical past of these who view our lives as a sequence of percentages to be managed.
