Are wealthier or more equal societies better?

Anna Jamieson, 17

In this project, I aimed to explore the impact of wealth and equality and discover an ideal model for society. I have done this by researching countries at different stages of development and investigating the differences between them and the way in which they have worked to improve their social and economic indicators.

Due to the length of this project, I have been unable to explore all the factors which are affected by equality and wealth within society. I understand that increasing wealth and equality are not achievable in all societies and I am discussing these issues from a theoretical perspective and it is not as simple as increasing wealth and equality as there is a large number of other factors affecting a countries development.
