The principle of equality is a widely held ideal, however, inequality is on the rise worldwide. In this unit, to understand this paradox, you will investigate the historical development of inequalities of wealth and income across the global economy. To do this, you will consider different strands of liberal, Marxian, feminist, and postcolonial economic thought that seek to shed light on how global economic processes produce different forms of inequalities. You will learn how to apply these different analytical frameworks to contemporary issues of inequality and policy debates in affluent and developing nations.
