The spirit level : why equality is better for everyone by Richard G Wilkinson ( Book )

"Why do we mistrust people more in the UK than in Japan? Why do Americans have higher rates of teenage pregnancy than the French? What makes the Swedish thinner than the Greeks? The answer: inequality. This groundbreaking book, based on years of research, provides hard evidence to show: how almost everything - from life expectancy to depression levels, violence to illiteracy - is affected not by how wealthy a society is, but how equal it is; that societies with a bigger gap between rich and poor are bad for everyone in them - including the well-off; and, how we can find positive solutions and move towards a happier, fairer future. Urgent, provocative and genuinely uplifting, "The Spirit Level" has been heralded as providing a new way of thinking about ourselves and our communities, and could change the way you see the world." -- Book cover.

Gleichheit ist Glück : warum gerechte Gesellschaften für alle besser sind by Richard G Wilkinson ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in German and held by 46 libraries worldwide
In jahrzehntelanger Forschung haben die beiden Wissenschaftler Richard Wilkinson und Kate Pickettempirische Daten gesammelt und ausgewertet, anhand derer sie den Einfluss der Ungleichheit auf eine Vielzahl der drängendsten sozialen Probleme entwickelter Gesellschaften untersuchen. Die geistige Gesundheit oder der Drogenkonsum der Mitglieder einer Gesellschaft, Lebenserwartung, Gesundheit, Übergewicht, Bildung, die Geburtenrate bei Minderjährigen, die Verbrechensrate und nicht zuletzt die soziale Mobilität: All diese Phänomene hängen statistisch eindeutig davon ab, wie ungleich die Einkommens- und somit Chancenverteilung einer Gesellschaft ist. Ab einem gewissen Einkommensniveau, das etwa auf der Höhe dessen von - ausgerechnet - Kuba liegt, ist es eben nicht mehr die Höhe des Durchschnittseinkommens, die es den Menschen immer bessergehen lässt, sondern die Verteilung des Einkommens.
