Among modern, developed societies, economic inequality is not primarily about money. It is about where we stand compared to other people. Money is simply the way we keep score.

THE BROKEN LADDER tells the story of inequality, not from an economic or political perspective, but from the perspective of the evolved brain, body and mind. Keith Payne is at the forefront of studies in inequality, and his research proves that relative poverty changes everything from our mood to our decision-making capabilities, affecting our goals, our health and even our religious views. Investigating evolutionary biology and data from widely differing species and societies, THE BROKEN LADDER shows how relative inequality impacts us all - even in societies that are thought to be more equal than others - and outline the steps we can take to combat its effects on both individual and societal levels.
