The Spirit Level

Equality book.

The Spirit Level is a collation of research from hundreds of independent scientific publications showing how and why people in more (economically) equal societies live longer, healthier, happier and more ecologically sustainable lives they then people in societies that are less equal. The book, released in 2009 by Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson, highlights the "pernicious effects that inequality has on societies: eroding trust, increasing anxiety and illness, (and) encouraging excessive consumption".
