  • The book ‘The Spirit Level’ was not written to show the link between inequality and voting systems but the link is nonetheless there if one looks closely. A quick review of the Spirit Level graphs shows that the countries with the greatest inequality are also generally using Plurality/Majority voting whereas those with the least inequality all have Proportional Representation voting systems.
