The biological consequences of socioeconomic inequalities /

by Wolfe, Barbara (ed.) | Evans, William (ed.) | Seeman, Teresa E. (ed.).

Publisher: New York, NY Russell Sage Foundation 2012Description: xx, 269 p.: ill.Notes: Includes bibliographic references and indexSummary: Social scientists have repeatedly uncovered a disturbing feature of economic inequality: people with larger incomes and better education tend to lead longer, healthier lives. This pattern holds across all ages and for virtually all measures of health, apparently indicating a biological dimension of inequality. But scholars have only begun to understand the complex mechanisms that drive this disparity. How exactly do financial well-being and human physiology interact? The Biological Consequences of Socioeconomic Inequalities incorporates insights from the social and biological sciences to quantify the biology of disadvantage and to assess how poverty gets under the skin to impact health.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Inequality, unemployment and contemporary Europe. / [in:] International Labour Review

by Sen, Amartya.

Edition: Vol. 136 No. 2 (Summer)Publisher: 1997Description: 17 p.Online Access: Journal article International Labour Review - Wiley Brotherhood staff see Library for further information Notes: Article in International Labour Review, Vol. 136 (1997), No. 2 (Summer)Summary: Inequality of incomes can differ substantially from inequality in other 'spaces' such as well-being, freedom, health, longevity, and quality of life. Given the massive sclae of unemployment in contemporary European economies, concentrating only on income inequality can be particularly deceptive for studying economic inequality, since unemployment causes deprivation in many other ways as well. This paper examines the different ways in which unemployment creates deprivation (other than through low income), and what implications these issues have on the relative merits of American and European attitudes respectively to individual responsibility and social commitment.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
