A very interesting TED talk by Richard Wilkinson.
He displays that societies tend to compare their “wealth” relative to others within the same society and within those countries with the largets gaps between “rich” and “poor” do the lowest levels of well-being and satisfaction exist.
He also details the harm and detrimental effects that this can yield and that these harms have a very close correlation to values like trust and respect.
Very much woth a look.
Enjoy and comments please.
