De gebroken ladder (Dutch Edition) by Keith Payne,Herman Meester

By Keith Payne,Herman Meester

Financiële onzekerheid leidt tot irrationeel en roekeloos gedrag

 

Het verhaal van ongelijkheid is die van de sociale ladder. Wij kijken naar de mensen om ons heen om onze welvaart te bepalen. Een arme Amerikaan zou in India rijk zijn met zijn ijskast en phone, maar hij ervaart toch echte armoede. En op het second dat iemand zich arm voelt, is wetenschappelijk aangetoond dat ze beslissingen op de korte termijn – die vaak op de lange termijn verkeerd zijn – gaan nemen.

Keith Payne onderzoekt hoe ongelijkheid binnen onze eigen sociale omgeving ons financieel verdeelt. Maar ook welke ingrijpende gevolgen het heeft op de manier waarop we denken, hoe we reageren op tension, hoe onze immuunsystemen functioneren en hoe we morele ideeën, zoals rechtvaardigheid en eerlijkheid, bekijken. Ongelijkheid creëert sociale problemen, zoals een lagere gemiddelde levensverwachting, ernstige gezondheidsproblemen, psychische aandoeningen en criminaliteit.

De gebroken ladder onderzoekt alle fysieke, psychologische en morele effecten van ongelijkheid en geeft zo een helder, maar ook verontrustend beeld over onze wereld in deze tijd.

 

Keith Payne doceert psychologie aan de Universiteit van North Carolina. Hij publiceerde meer dan zeventig artikelen en hoofdstukken over ongelijkheid en discriminatie. Zijn werk is onder andere gepubliceerd in The Huffington Post, The Atlantic, Scientific American en Psychology Today.
