Global Perspectives on Wealth and Distribution
This is a broad-ranging and interdisciplinary series dedicated to studying the fundamental economic issue of inequality, including wealth inequality, wage and earnings differentials, and inequality in alternative measures of well-being. The series focuses on studies of developed nations as well as volumes focusing on recent research on inequality in the developing world. Gender- and racial-based inequality and the intra-household division of resources are addressed as well as inequality associated with technological change and globalization and the persistent problem of poverty. The economics of human rights addresses the problems of the most vulnerable members of society and considers policies to alleviate human rights violations.
