Inequality Kills Posted byRob August 3rd, 2005June 1st, 2014 1 Comment on Inequality Kills There was an interesting book review in last weekend’s Guardian about the greater toxic effect of social inequality rather than poverty per se.
Hi. I read the book review – interesting. As someone who lives below the “poverty line”, I agree that the inability to control one’s environment has negative psychological and physiological consequences. But …
… the reviewer seems to be mainly talking about the poor who actually aren’t so poor – The poor have what their grandparents would think unimaginable luxuries – TVs, telephones and washing machines. – the true poor who are watching their children starve probably aren’t concentrating on their social standing.
