Richard Wilkinson: How economic inequality harms societies | Video on TED.com

Thanks to liveonearth for sharing this.

I have taught about economic inequality for nearly 50 years.  I thought this was great.
I intend to watch and rewatch this video.
Here are some of my quick first impressions.

Wealth is far less important for a society than how wealth is shared!
All people are better off, and the poor are much better of where wealth is shared more equally..
Inequality is related to (and probably creates) a whole range of social and personal problems.
The United States has a very unequal distribution of income and is highest on almost every index of stress and social and personal harm.

Liveonearth titled her entry: What a miserable people we are.
