TED Tuesday: How Economic Inequality Harms Societies

This selection was inspired by my most recent Deconstructing December post.

Many people have a gut feeling that a large gap in wealth between the richest and poorest in a country is bad. However, it's nicer to have data illustrating these negative associations. This talk has lots of interesting graphs demonstrating the associations between economic inequality and various important outcomes. They pass quickly, so I recommend repeatedly pausing. The presentation is rather ho-hum, but I find the content fascinating.
