I thought I should pass this along, from The Equality Trust:
This week saw the launch of an important new booklet called Why Inequality Matters. It draws on key findings in The Spirit Level and also presents further essential information about income inequality and its consequences in a brief and accessible format.
The booklet was written by members of My Fair London, a group of volunteers affiliated to The Equality Trust, and produced in association with the Trust and the CLASS think-tank. We hope you find the booklet useful and informative and we should be very grateful if you could share it with as many people as possible, especially those who may not have the time to read The Spirit Level.
The booklet can be accessed directly here: http://www.equalitytrust.org.uk/docs/why-inequality-matters.pdf
