    Were the 80s that bad? I was just listening to another podcast earlier in which folks were saying that 70s movies were really dark because everything seemed to be falling apart, and then in the 80s people got more optimistic, patriotic etc. Arthur Okun famously developed a “misery index” during the 60s, and the Reagan era had the biggest drop in it since Truman:

    On the other hand, crime basically plateaued, with a sustained drop not occurring until 1994.
