|Abstract: ||High and rising levels of inequality in much of the world are shown to stem from neoliberal reform, and to be particularly acute in the United States and the UK. Three approaches to understanding this are compared: liberal globalism, global developmentalism, and historical materialism. In line with the third of these, rising inequality is explained in terms of a shift in power from labour to capital.|
