Opis: The Globalization of Inequality - Francois Bourguignon

In The Globalization of Inequality, distinguished economist and policymaker Francois Bourguignon examines the complex and paradoxical links between a vibrant world economy that has raised the living standard of over half a billion people in emerging nations such as China, India, and Brazil, and the exponentially increasing inequality within countries. Exploring globalization's role in the evolution of inequality, Bourguignon takes an original and truly international approach to the decrease in inequality between nations, the increase in inequality within nations, and the policies that might moderate inequality's negative effects. Demonstrating that in a globalized world it becomes harder to separate out the factors leading to domestic or international inequality, Bourguignon examines each trend through a variety of sources, and looks at how these inequalities sometimes balance each other out or reinforce one another. Factoring in the most recent economic crisis, Bourguignon investigates why inequality in some countries has dropped back to levels that have not existed for several decades, and he asks if these should be considered in the context of globalization or if they are in fact specific to individual nations. Ultimately, Bourguignon argues that it will be up to countries in the developed and developing world to implement better policies, even though globalization limits the scope for some potential redistributive instruments. An informed and original contribution to the current debates about inequality, this book will be essential reading for anyone who is interested in the future of the world economy. "This timely and excellent primer on income inequality both within and among nations deserves to be read by both occupiers and occupants of Wall Street."--Publishers Weekly "Globalization has unleashed powerful forces: some wonderful, some worrying. This book can take you beyond the cliches to an understanding of what is going on and what can be done about it."--Sir Paul Collier, Prospect "Readers wanting a map of the terrain should read Bourguignon. Bourguignon['s] provides an accessible overview."--Martin Wolf, Financial Times "This book is written in calm prose, but its message is urgent: continue as we are and poverty will grow on our doorsteps."--Danny Dorling, Times Higher EducationForeword to the English Edition vii Introduction: Globalization and Inequality 1 Chapter 1 Global Inequality 9 Appendix to Chapter 1 Detailed Evidence on the Recent Changes in Global Inequality 41 Chapter 2 Are Countries Becoming More Unequal? 47 Chapter 3 Globalization and the Forces behind the Rise in Inequality 74 Chapter 4 Toward a Fair Globalization: Prospects and Principles 117 Chapter 5 Which Policies for a Fairer Globalization? 146 Conclusion Globalizing Equality? 184 Index 191
