The impacts of globalisation and liberalisation on inequality

  • Year: 2006
  • Organisation: TIPS
  • Author(s): Albert Berry

In his paper, Albert Berry - professor of economics and director of the Latin American programme at the Centre for International Studies of the University of Toronto - identifies the impacts of globalisation and liberalisation on inequality. He finds that data deficiencies and a lack of in-depth analysis of inequality, poverty and their determinants - especially in developing countries - have delayed a better understanding of how these important indicators of social and economic well-being have been changing over time, and how they have been affected by globalisation and liberalisation.
