The Broken Ladder explores such issues as why women in poor societies often have more children, and have them younger, why there is little trust among the working class that investing for the future will pay off, why people's perception of their relative social status affects their political beliefs, and why growing inequality leads to greater political divisions, how poverty raises stress levels in the same way as a physical threat, inequality in the workplace and how it affects performance, why unequal societies become more religious and finally offers measures people can take to lessen the harm done by inequality in their own lives and the lives of their children.
