The Link Between Income Inequality And Religious Fervour

On BBC Radio’s Thinking Allowed, Dr. Tom Rees explains his study on the link between income inequality and religious belief.

After examining 50 countries, Rees has found a correlation between a country’s level of economic stratification, and its religiosity. The case of the United States is fitting, in that it has both higher levels of religious belief and a greater gulf between rich and poor than most similarly developed nations.
