Via Paul Krugman's blog: The Economics of Marginalization and Hopelessness. Excerpt:
That’s one of the subject headings in this recent survey paper (pdf) on teen births, which are much higher in America than in other advanced countries. The authors find evidence suggesting that inequality and lack of mobility are central, another sign that Wilkinson-type views about the corrosive effects of inequality are going seriously mainstream.
One of the maddening aspects of much current American discussion of inequality has been the dogged refusal to deal with Wilkinson and with the whole idea of inequality as a cause of poor health and social problems. So it's encouraging that Krugman is endorsing "Wilkinson-type views" and thereby bringing them to more people's attention.
