Inequality is more than just economics, it is the culture that divides and makes social mobility almost impossible. Leading writer Danny Dorling goes in pursuit of the latest research into how the lives and ideas of the 1% impact on the remaining 99%; and the findings are shocking. Inequality is increasing; more and more people are driven towards the poverty line. Even before birth, being born outside the 1% will have dramatic impact on the rest of your life- it will reduce your life expectancy, educational and work prospects, as well as your mental health. In this book, filled with illustrations and infographics that bring the facts to life, Dorling convincingly proves that the cost of the super rich is just too high for us.… (mais)

It is easy to write a rant about inequality: even I could probably manage that. What is much more tricky, is to write a book that patiently explains the reasons for, the effects of and the possible solutions for income inequality. Danny Dorling manages the latter.

The major economic countries have been in a state of 'Austerity' since the banking crisis of 2008. Western governments have bailed out the rich, by hitting the poor and blaming minorities. Dorling patiently explains this, gives cogent argument as to why this has worked and shown the cracks that have appeared in the pretence that the suffering of the less wealthy is the only solution.

I see that some reviewers have been less generous with their rating and, frankly, this amazes me. I presume them not to be the elite 1% and can see no reason for anyone else to dispute, or dislike the conclusions drawn. I am getting tired of being assailed by open racists, who have no understanding of the reasons for austerity and jump on the proffered bandwagon which blames immigration for all our woes.

This book is a must read for anyone with an iota of belief that the right wing "There is no such thing as society" view is questionable. ( )

This book has enough facts to make you angry (unless you are a billionaire). Sometimes though there are too many statistics and the point is lost.
And although Danny Dorling is obviously passionate about this, somehow the passion isn't conveyed in his writing. Can't see this book leading the revolution - just making us all depressed that democracy now belongs to the mega-rich - who very cleverly have us fighting each other rather than them. ( )
