A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Monday: Spirit Level

Tomorrow, we’ll discuss two books by Wilkinson and Pickett–The Spirit Level and The Inner Level.

The Spirit Level, published in 2009, seems to have ignited an active debate about both its methodologies and conclusions, but Wilkinson and Pickett seem to have engaged and responded to their critics–including the addition of more detail, citations, etc. in subsequent editions of the book.

Wilkinson’s efforts seem to be concentrated online at The Equality Trust, where you can find a variety of initiatives spun off from the premises of the book.

And, for those who haven’t read both books, here’s a link to some PowerPoint slides with key charts and exhibits from The Spirit Level.
