✏Inequality Within States Book Summary : “The issue of inequality in wealth and income has gained prominence in the political discussion, not at least because inequality had not been expected to increase in countries wealthy already. How to gauge that process? Using which indicators? Can economics suffice to explain the mechanics of this development? For if it were due to economics only, how to explain the still marked differences in OECD countries with some, such as prominently the US or the UK, having become very unequal; while the rise in inequality had been much more dampened in other OECD countries such as the Scandinavian ones or in Austria? What then are the driving forces behind the process and what the causes for the widely different outcomes in OECD countries? In putting these questions, one opens a vast field for inquiry. Herwig Meyer has not shied from attempting such an overview. In a trans – disciplinary approach, and with the use of a vast array of resources he has done so successfully, thus providing a kind of basic, easily accessible “reader” on the subject.“ Dozent Dr. Thomas Nowotny Vienna University

✏The New Gilded Age Book Summary : Income inequality is an increasingly pressing issue in the United States and around the world. This book explores five critical issues to introduce some of the key moral and empirical questions about income, gender, and racial inequality: Do we have a moral obligation to eliminate poverty? Is inequality a necessary evil that's the best way available to motivate economic action and increase total outpt? Can we retain a meaningful democracy even when extreme inequality allows the rich to purchase political privilege? Is the recent stalling out of long-term declines in gender inequality a historic reversal that presages a new gender order? How are racial and ethnic inequalities likely to evolve as minority populations grow ever larger, as intermarriage increases, and as new forms of immigration unfold? Leading public intellectuals debate these questions in a no-holds-barred exploration of our New Gilded Age.
