Because more equal societies work better for everyone

How Inequality Became THE Issue - Five Years of The Spirit Level

 Registration is closed for this event

Since its publication in 2009, The Spirit Level has sold over 250,000 copies worldwide. Described as an idea "big enough to change political thought," it highlighted how the UK's extreme levels of income inequality damage our health, education and society.

Five years ago, economic inequality was an issue little understood and even less discussed. Today the likes of Barack Obama, the IMF and the luminaries of Davos acknowledge its pernicious and corrosive effects on our economy and democracy. So what's changed? 

Join The Equality Trust for a discussion event with The Spirit Level's authors, Professors Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson on how our understanding of inequality has changed, and how the 'rich and the rest' has become a crucial part of the political and national debate. 

Speakers include:

- Professor Kate Pickett
- Professor Richard Wilkinson
- Jon Cruddas MP - Labour
- Julian Huppert MP - Liberal Democrat
- Guy Opperman MP - Conservative
