It is time for action on economic inequality in London
London has the largest gap between rich and poor of any city in the developed world. Evidence from The Spirit Level and beyond shows that the greater this gap, the greater the problems for all, rich or poor. Crime, distrust and anxiety increase. Education, health and social mobility suffer.
Economic inequality harms everyone. It also costs the taxpayer. The My Fair London Group believes that those with power must do something to address this urgent problem and so do the vast majority of Londoners.
