A Convenient Truth - New Fabian Society publication from Professors Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett

In A Convenient Truth, a new publication for the Fabian Society, Professors Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett explore how the link 'between economic development and real improvements in quality of life is broken in rich societies' and set out 'a path towards a society that’s better for us and the planet'. Pickett and Wilkinson argue that for real improvements in wellbeing, we need a more equal society, which is best achieved by putting democracy at the heart of the economy.
