The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone

The next meeting of The Differential Association will cover Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett's so-called 'theory of everything', The Spirit Level.

The thesis of the work, which has garnered huge worldwide interest and been subject to a sustained campaign of nay-sayers, argues that those countries with the widest disparity between the top and bottom income tiers have worse measures of practically any criterion of social ill that you can measure. A controversial and far-reaching work, so we're hoping for a robust bit of debate!

Location: Mulligan's back room, on Poolbeg Street
Date: Thursday 18th October
Time: 6pm
