|recommend book⇒The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger|
|by||Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson Hartmann||978-1-60819-341-7||paperback|
|The book explains the research that shows that equality, even more than economic growth, determines wellbeing. Equality improves health, lawfulness, civil participation and trust. The wealthiest citizen of the most equal countries are better off than the wealthiest citizens in the unequal countries like Britain and the USA. Further, inequality fosters consumerism and ecological destruction. At the time of writing this book has still not been published. I learned about it from a speech by Ed Broadbent, former leader of the NDP at the NDP convention in Halifax.|
