John Nickson is a campaigner for philanthropy. In the nineteenth century, when the Victorians invented the modern Christmas, most of us in all classes were philanthropic. Giving is Good for You demonstrates that growing inequality and poverty is a threat to everyone — even the wealthy — and that the most unequal societies are the most dysfunctional, unhealthy and violent. Royalties from the sale of this book go to The Royal College of Music Scholarship Fund and Insight: Research From Mental Health Inequality in Britain is on the rise. Should we be bothered that the rich give proportionately much less than the poor? Meanwhile, those on the Sunday Times Rich List have increased their wealth by 20 per cent in the last two years amidst press reports of massive tax avoidance. For the first time in living memory, children cannot expect to be as well off as their parents. Youth unemployment is at record levels.
