"Anneli Jordahl on the praised the researchers 'new book"
"”How will you into a classroom and tell him that you know people who been shot?”"
"I think at Evin Ahmad's prosadebut One day I'll build a castle of money when I read epidemiologerna Richard Wilkinson and Kate Picketts The internal inequalities. Their research focuses on how economic inequality leads to social disgrace, which, in turn, affects the body and mind. Ahmad's book gives flesh and blood to the british researchers ' vital statistics."
"Berättarjaget – tonårstjejen in the Resort – suffering from social anxiety. Parents ' physically hard work gives pain, but not the wages that is enough for the basic stuff. The ambient klassförakt and racism evokes shame, it seeps in like poison in the body. The self becomes depressed. She bullies, gets bullied."
"It is precisely the latter that the scientists are staying at. How does utstötningsmekanismerna? How to handle the affected humiliation? Sara Lidman called this group dynamics for ”byanden”."
"nwhen ”Jämlikhetsanden” was published in English in 2010, was the a sensation. Wilkinson and Pickett succeeded, namely, with the compelling research results show that in egalitarian countries felt the entire population, both rich and poor, better than in the unequal. Konsumtionshets and status-seeking gifts are not prosperous, narcissists feel no further."
"most clearly, was there when the american states were investigated. Those who were the most democratically governed had the best public health. Fewer addicts, fewer people in prison, fewer who suffered from mental illness. The rich were not afraid of violence and sagging barricade themselves in their homes."
"In the research highlighted the scandinavian countries, and Japan forward as an example. Since then, Sweden has fallen behind: unequal school are highlighted. Yes, we all know what happened in eight years. New public management-stress affects all occupational groups. But the worst are the with the least resources, single parents with påhugg on the vagaries of the precarious labour market. Epidemiologerna shows that health is adversely affected by every step we take down the society hierarchy."
"nUppföljaren The internal inequality deepens that which is already said in the first book, it doesn't give the same wow-feeling. The results confirm the things I already read in terms of economic equality, linked to democracy, not least in the sociologist Göran Therborn. In his book with the clear title of the Inequality kills quotes Therborn Wilkinson and Pickett. In the nineties it was considered their thesis is provocative, but ”the empirical evidence is irrefutable”."
"Somewhere write Therborn to experienced psychologists can look at a two-year-old which social class the child belongs to. What I think of when the british highlights how children from working class less of an incentive (cannot afford leisure activities, the exhausted parents), and in the home, the children hear the fewer words than middle class children. Financial repression affects the brain and intelligence. It is now proven that the signs of ointelligens is caused by poverty, not vice versa."
"in 1980 (4 percent of americans of a mental disorder was associated with anxiety. Today the figure is 50 percent"
"It is most stimulating with Wilkinson and Pickett's the global activities. The method involves collecting statistics from colleagues in many different countries: Finland compared with India. The inequality that kills becomes concrete. In Sweden live the working class about ten years shorter than that of the middle and upper classes."
"In England it can be about a 17-year difference in life expectancy between a poor Londoner and a well."
"reach 1980 (4 percent of americans of a mental disorder was associated with anxiety. Today the figure is 50 per cent. Half of the population! And the global ångestepidemin affects 8.2 million in the Uk."
"It comes to join forces and change, say the researchers. Man's inherent quest for justice is something to build on for the future. Studies in the social anguish of history shows that in the old jägarsamhällen it was a matter of honor to share equally for that the group would stay together. An inherent moral sense of duty to see to it that no one in the group loses face."
"Climate change as this now requires a change of consumption patterns can lead to greater equality, hope epidemiologerna. Here goes forskaridentiteten over in activism. In an appendix to be informed readers of Wilkinson and Picketts private välgörenhetsinstitut, founded to distribute economic resources more democratic."
"Good initiative. Both the talk and workshop. But there is a risk that the prescriptive turning your off the skeptics, then look at the results of the research as biased."
"I am afraid that this indispensable book is tröstegodis for the already saved."
