For June 2014 Book Club we are reading The Spirit Level. Renowned researchers Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett find that one common factor links the healthiest and happiest societies: the degree of equality among their members. Almost every modern social problem—poor health, violence, lack of community life, teen pregnancy, mental illness—is more likely to occur in a less-equal society. But they do not merely tell us what’s wrong. They offer a way toward a new political outlook, shifting from self-interested consumerism to a friendlier, more sustainable society. Find more below on the book and topic.
