The Creation of Wealth and Poverty : Means and Ways Hardback
Part of the Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy series
The Creation of Wealth and Poverty is a study of the means and ways by which wealth and poverty are created in both developed and developing countries.
It puts a particular emphasis on the role played by economic policy in shaping the stratification of modern societies through specific programmes dealing with issues of job creation, poverty and environmental degradation.
This book is concerned with the social effects of the ongoing crisis in finance, development and the environment.
By focusing on the political, legal and financial institutions that govern society and the economy, the book provides an analysis of wealth and poverty from a historical perspective.
It shows how economic and social policies of the neoliberal model have led to a rise in unemployment, poverty and inequality and, therefore, made societies more polarized. This volume will be of great interest to policymakers, academics and students who study political economy, development economics and macroeconomics.
