Global Capitalism in Disarray

Inequality, Debt, and Austerity

Andres Solimano

  • Integrates inequality, crises, financial cycles, and political developments, which are often considered separately
  • Puts issues in historical perspective and draws on the history of economic thought
  • Links the problem of inequality with the occurrence of macroeconomic and financial shocks affecting stock markets and housing markets and examines cycles of boom and bust and processes of debt accumulation that hamper economic recovery
  • Studies the relation between austerity policies and economic stagnation and wealth concentration, providing empirical data and country narratives
  • Using up to date new inequality data bases, contrasts inequality in mature capitalist economies such as US and UK and inequality in emerging economies such as Chile and South Africa
  • Offers historical narratives useful for the current realities and provides an integrative analysis of the multiple crises affecting global capitalism, offering solutions
