  1. Unequal Societies — Thinking Allowed (BBC Radio 4)

    "Research has shown that health and social problems become more acute in an unequal society, where the gap between the richest and poorest is greatest. For most of us, respect is measured in money, and lack of it or low pay tells us that we are worth very little. But given the chance, would we as a society be prepared to rebalance? Laurie Taylor discusses these issues with Professor Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett, authors of "The Spirit Level: Why Equal Societies Almost Always So Better", and Sunder Katwala from The Fabian Society on a new paper on underlying motivation."
