With the General Election results now in, this edition draws on key voices on inequality to give their one idea for how the new government, and all other political parties, should address the UK’s extreme inequality.

This issue includes:

The Great Leveller

This documentary, called The Great Leveller, was made for the Channel 4 Equinox series and first screened in 1996 to coincide with the publication of Richard Wilkinson's book Unhealthy Societies: the afflictions of inequality (Routledge 1996). It shows the development of research and thinking at that date on health inequalities and the wider social determinants of health.
