The Spirit Level Part 2

In September last year I posted this about a book called The Spirit Level by Richard Wilkinson and Katie Jarrett, a book which presents firm evidence that every citizen, regardless of level of income, benefits greatly and in many ways from living in a more equal society.

The Institute for Public Policy Reaserch (IPPR) has posted a web page and a PowerPoint presentation by Richard Wilkinson to download.

I think the ideas in The Spirit Level are political dynamite, and would suggest, if you haven't already done so, you should have a look at the IPPR data and then buy the book.
