Inequalities of income, wealth and of power have been with us for millennia. This book is a critique of the counter-productivity of growing economic inequality from the 1980s to today. Douglas Dowd argues against capitalist expansion, exploitation and oligarchic rule.

The book states that the globalisation and growth of the financial sector will impact painfully upon hundreds of millions of people.

Presenting both a history of the current crisis and well as an overview of its politics, Inequality and the Global Economic Crisis look at militarism, consumerism, the media, education, housing and the homeless, nutrition and hunger, family life for a full picture of the destruction of global financialisation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Douglas Dowd is our most reliable economic historian, and in this book he skilfully weaves together the current economic crisis, the globalisation factor, and the persistence of equality to come up with a penetrating analysis of where we are today. The book is full of useful, often startling information. It is an ideal antidote to the nonsense we get from the so-called experts' -- Howard Zinn
'There's no person alive that I've learned more from than Doug Dowd' -- Daniel Ellsberg, author of "Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers."
'Offers readers a reliable, clear-headed and compassionate analysis of the current global economic crisis' -- Marilyn B. Young, Professor of History, New York University and co-editor of Bombing Civilians: A 20th Century History.
