*Tóm tắt : This advanced macroeconomics text is designed for senior undergraduates and postgraduates of international macroeconomics.

Other innovative areas featured in this book are the analysis of macro-commercial policy, the debt crisis emanating from North-South interaction, the effects of natural resource booms in open economy as well as the role of imported intermediate inputs and non-traded goods in open economy macroeconomics .

*Tóm tắt : The book begins with the "race" between technology and education, and shows that continuing technical progress does not necessarily imply a continuing rise in dispersion.

The book breaks new ground in assembling data on the distribution of individual earnings covering much of the twentieth century and drawing on a variety of under-exploited sources .

Nhan đề: The rich get richer : the rise of income inequality in the United States and the world / Denny Braun Số phân loại : 339.20973 D204; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 383 p. : ill., maps ; 23 cm
*Tóm tắt : This edition is a penetrating and urgent study of the increasing levels of income inequality in the United States and the world. The erosion of the middle class poses a threat to worldwide economic and political stability, as consumers and their children slowly disappear into growing rates of poverty, crime, and violence. Braun examines the economic plight of all people including those in developing nations where a tiny minority controls much of the wealth, and links this inequality to relationships between Third World nations and multinational corporations. This second edition includes new information on the working poor, Mexico and NAFTA, cross-country perceptions of inequality, mass media and political manipulation, and corporations and their overpaid CEOs .

Nhan đề: Personal wealth from a global perspective / James B. Davies Số phân loại : 339.22 J104; Đặc điểm vật lý: xxiv, 467 tr. : ill., maps ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : There is great media fascination in the activities and lifestyles of the super-rich. But personal wealth is also important for those of more modest means as a store of potential consumption, as a cushion against emergencies, and as collateral for business and investment loans. This book is the first global study of household assets and debts. It documents not only the level, distribution, and trend of wealth holdings in rich nations, but also addresses developing countries like China and India. The situation in Latin America and Africa is given attention along with the experiences of Russia and other transition countries. Components of household wealth like financial assets, land, and property are examined, as well as the gender division. Worldwide, it is estimated that the richest 2% own more than half of total global wealth, and that this elite group resides almost exclusively in North America, Western Europe, and rich Asia-Pacific countries .
