The Spirit Level Discussion with Kate Pickett (co-author) 17 Jan 2011

From SERTUC "Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone (Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett)

This book is an attack on the inequalities in Britain caused by the Government policies of the last 30 years. An accessible but rigorous book that demonstrates with empirical evidence that more equal societies have
better outcomes. Such as less crime, ill-health and general unhappiness.

This is a very important book in the opposition to cuts in public spending in the financial crisis
