Maybe We Should Get To Know the Jonses?

MIND MATTERS

Richard Wilkons ( a social researcher), proves in this clip from a Tedx conference that a more equal society is much better off on every indicator than one with a large gap between the  the rich and poor.

More equal society’s have fewer social problems, longer life expectancy, less violence, greater social mobility and better mental and physical health.

So rather than constantly trying to  ‘keep up with the Joneses,’ and out perform them with a bigger house, car, better job – maybe we should get to know them instead.
