Book: The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone
Author: Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett
Teaser: In this book, Wilkinson and Pickett remind us that it is not poverty but inequality that causes most damage to society. They also outline how more equal societies enjoy greater health and well-being and that this benefits everyone in society- the most and least deprived. In healthcare, we must therefore, address inequity of access, or the Inverse Care Law, as this is a form of inequality that is entirely within our control.
