The next meeting of the HERHG will be at 7.30pm on Monday 17th September 2012 in the back room of The Tiger Inn, Lairgate, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 8JG. The book “The Spirit Level: Why More Equal Societies Almost Always Do Better” by Richard G. Wilkinson and Kate Pickett was published in 2009 and argued that in rich countries, a smaller gap between rich and poor means a happier, healthier, and more successful population. We will be having an open discussion about the value or otherwise of seeking a more equal and egalitarian society and the policies that might achieve this end. All welcome.
