Marsh receives Excellence Award in the Explanatory Journalism category for "Why Inequality Is Bad for the One Percent"
The GGSC is pleased to announce that the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists has awarded Greater Good Science Center Editor-in-Chief Jason Marsh a 2013 Excellence in Journalism Award for his story, “Why Inequality Is Bad for the One Percent,” a gripping look at how income disparity can negatively impact both the wealthy and the poor.
Relying on cutting-edge research, Jason’s story illustrates the ways in which having wealth may adversely affect an individual’s ability to be compassionate, understand social cues, and trust others. Those deficiencies can hinder social connection, a key part of our happiness and our physical health.
