Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett

February 2, 2019 - 7:00pm

Ravenna

Why are people more relaxed and at ease with each other in some countries than others? Why is the American dream more of a reality in Denmark than the USA? As The Inner Level demonstrates, the answer to all these is inequality. Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett put inequality at the center of public debate by showing conclusively that less equal societies fare worse than more equal ones across everything from education to life expectancy.

But there are more scientists making more discoveries in more places about more things than ever before.” The twenty-six pieces assembled here chart the full spectrum of those discoveries.
