Building More Equal Societies, Presentation by Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson (University Bookstore, 2/1/2019)
Posted: 1/28/2019 (Local Events)
Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson are authors of the “The Spirit Level: why greater equality makes societies stronger,” the 2009 book that highlighted the corrosive effects of income and wealth inequality. Released this month is their second book, “Inner Level: how more equal societies reduce stress, restore sanity and improve everybody’s well-being.” Their ideas are ground-breaking in identifying the profoundly detrimental effects of economic inequality on society both here and almost everywhere.
