Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett

RICHARD WILKINSON and KATE PICKETT – on Why Equality is Better for Everyone.

What does money do best?
How much health, wellbeing, and happiness can we buy?
What is community?
What is equality?
Does it matter who you know or what you know?
What do you know about social policies?

This illustrated talk, by the authors of the ground-breaking book The Spirit Level, will look at the changing social and political landscape and show how equality has a greater bearing than wealth on society’s well being.

The Spirit Level was championed by David Cameron in his Hugo Young Lecture last year; and Ken Livingstone chose it as his book of the year.

Richard Wilkinson, an author whose work has been translated and published in ten languages, is Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham and Honorary Professor at University College London.

Kate Pickett, co-author, has been assistant Professor at the University of Chicago and is currently Senior Lecturer at the University of York.

Kate and Richard have founded The Equality Trust.
