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.
So we’re asking the Mayor of London to take action to reduce economic inequality in the Capital.
IMPORTANT NEW PUBLICATION – the new booklet Why Inequality Matters
This booklet draws on the bestselling book “The Spirit Level – Why Equality is Better for Everyone” by Professors Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett which shows that most social problems are worse in more unequal societies and that inequality lies at their root.
This booklet has been produced by members of My Fair London in response to requests from politicians, trade unionists, and members of the public.

Our huge thanks go to My Fair London for producing this and, in particular, John Philo and Peter Robbins for their major contributions.
