The Effects of Inequality on Societies

Everyone should see Richard Wilkinson’s talk about the effects of inequality on societies.

Inequality: The Enemy Between Us?

He presents data with pretty high negative correlations between the level of inequality in a society and different kinds of indicators for social well being. In short: unequal countries have more social problems than equal countries. All people, rich and poor, are better off in a more equal society.

The talk was organized by the ARC CUNY (Advanced Research Collaborative—City University of New York). View on YouTube: Video page, ARC CUNY Channel.

Richard Wilkinson, together with Kate Pickett, is author of the book

“The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better”.

Kate Pickett held a presentation on the 2010 INET conference (as noted on this blog):
