Inequality is one of our most urgent social problems. Curbed in the decades after World War II, it has recently returned with a vengeance. We all know the scale of the problem—talk about the 99% and the 1% is entrenched in public debate—but there has been little discussion of what we can do but despair.

Thus, the inequality debate goes ’round and ’round. No hint is given of a third source of value for society to draw upon. The labor-capital oppositorum is a fixed constellation in our cosmology. Two-party, two philosophy politics is the expression of that cosmology.

There is no conceptual space for the third element. The New Inequality Debate. More mainstream economists now find that the income mal-distribution reflects the political sway of elites, not economic imperatives.

It claims that for each of eleven different health and social problems: physical health, mental health, drug Author: Richard Wilkinson, Kate Pickett.

The inequality debate should focus more on the sources and reasons for inequality, and less on how much inequality there is, or how much it has changed; more on explaining inequality, and less on deploring it.
