Defending “The Spirit Level” (2)

In an editorial today, the “Guardian” newspaper defends the work of Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett in their important work “The Spirit Level”:

“Perhaps some dark corners of the soul arrive with the human condition; many others emerge in lives that have little in societies where others have lots. After a budget that made the poor poorer, it should be no surprise that some want to see that insight buried. Yet to emerge from stricken times without breaking Britain, The Spirit Level’s inconvenient truths must be faced.”

Just a reminder that you can read my review of the book here.
