My Fair London and The Equality Trust: ‘Why Inequality Matters’
‘Why Inequality Matters’ by members of My Fair London in association with The Equality Trust was published in September 2013.
The pamphlet presents the key findings of the book ‘The Spirit Level – Why Equality is Better for Everyone’.
It shows that benefits of great equality are not confined to the least well off and the differences are huge, and can’t be explained by levels of poverty within each country, or by the health and behaviour of minority groups. In fact, the vast majority of the population do better in more equal societies. Too much inequality on the other hand results in the familiar signs of ‘broken societies’. Central to these problems is the loss of cohesion in more unequal societies.
