The Political Economy of Inequality (Frontier Issues in Economic Thought (Paperback)), Frank Ackerman, Neva R. Goodwin, Laurie Doudherty, Frank N. Ackerman, Tufts University Global DeveloThe disparity in wealth both within and between nations has grown rapidly in recent years, and is becoming an increasingly significant issue in attempts to deal with environmental problems - from international negotiations over climate change to localconcerns about environmental justice.
The Political Economy of Inequality offers an in-depth examination of the economic theory behind the causes, consequences, and cures for inequality. The volume brings together disparate analyses of inequality in economic and related fields, identifies areas where more work is most needed, and lays the groundwork for an integrated understanding of the causes and consequences of inequality in the United States and the world.
Sections cover:
  • the distributionof earnings
  • the distribution of wealth
  • celebrity and CEO incomes
  • the effects of corporate power
  • poverty, inequality, and power
  • household roles and family structure
  • skills, technology, and education
  • categorical inequalities, such as those based on race, gender, or ethnicity
  • inequality on a global scale
  • the welfare state
The book is the fifth in the six-volume Frontier Issues in Economic Thought series. Each volume offers two- to three-page summaries of the most notable articles and chapters in a frontier area where important new work is being done but has not yet been incorporated into the standard definition of economics. Introductory essays by the editors review the field, cite other literature that was not summarized, and situate the summarized articles within an overview of the subject.
As with the other volumes in the series, The Political Economy of Inequality offers an invaluable overview of an emerging field of economics and is a unique reference for students and scholars concerned with economic policy, social economics, work and labor issues, international and sustainable development, or related topics. Обо всём этом и не только в книге The Political Economy of Inequality (Frontier Issues in Economic Thought (Paperback)) (Frank Ackerman, Neva R. Goodwin, Laurie Doudherty, Frank N. Ackerman, Tufts University Global Develo)
