 Richard Wilkinson Biography

For decades, Richard Wilkinson has studied the social effects of income inequality and how social forces affect health. In "The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better," a book he coauthored with Kate Pickett, Wilkinson lays out reams of statistical evidence that, among developed countries, societies that are more equal -- with a smaller income gap between rich and poor -- are happier and healthier than societies with greater disparities in the distribution of wealth.

While poverty has long been recognized as an indicator for such social ills as crime, obesity and teen pregnancy, Wilkinson and Pickett have demonstrated that societal well-being bears no relation to per capita income. They’ve also found that the symptoms of inequality trouble all levels of society. Across the board, mental health, levels of violence and addiction, even life expectancy are affected by the psycho-social stress caused by income gaps and status anxiety.

In the UK, "The Spirit Level" won support from politicians both left and right. Wilkinson, who is Professor Emeritus of Social Epidemiology at the University of Nottingham, also co-founded The Equality Trust, a nonprofit that aims to reduce income inequality by educating and engaging the public while supporting political commitment to address the problem.
