Trade and poverty : when the Third World fell behind by Jeffrey G Williamson( )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 2,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today's wide economic gap between the postindustrial countries of the West and the poorer countries of the third world is not new. Fifty years ago, the world economic order -- two hundred years in the making -- was already characterized by a vast difference in per capita income between rich and poor countries and by the fact that poor countries exported commodities (agricultural or mineral products) while rich countries exported manufactured products. In Trade and Poverty, leading economic historian Jeffrey G. Williamson traces the great divergence between the third world and the West to this nexus of trade, commodity specialization, and poverty. Analyzing the role of specialization, de-industrialization, and commodity price volatility with econometrics and case studies of India, Ottoman Turkey, and Mexico, Williamson demonstrates why the close correlation between trade and poverty emerged. Globalization and the great divergence were causally related, and thus the rise of globalization over the past two centuries helps account for the income gap between rich and poor countries today
Globalization and the poor periphery before 1950 by Jeffrey Gale Williamson( )

18 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Globalization and the Poor Periphery before 1950 Jeffrey Williamson examines globalization through the lens of both the economist and the historian, analyzing its economic impact on industrially lagging poor countries in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Williamson argues that industrialization in the core countries of northwest Europe and their overseas settlements, combined with a worldwide revolution in transportation, created an antiglobal backlash in the periphery, the poorer countries of eastern and southern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America."--Jacket
The age of mass migration : causes and economic impact by T. J Hatton( )

23 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 1,850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"About fifty-five million Europeans migrated to the New World between 1850 and 1914. This was an unprecedented migration that marked a profound shift in the distribution of global population and economic activity." "In The Age of Mass Migration: An Economic Analysis, Timothy J. Hatton and Jeffrey G. Williamson document this exodus and analyze its causes and effects. Their comprehensive study explores several key areas of inquiry that are still contested today, such as: Why did a nation's emigration rate typically rise with early industrialization? How did immigrants choose their destinations? Were international labor markets segmented? How successfully did migrants assimilate in host country labor markets? Did immigrants "rob" jobs from locals? Did emigration improve the lot of those left behind? The authors, both eminent economic historians, confront these questions in fresh ways. They consider existing debates in light of contemporary evidence and open new lines of inquiry. Above all, they argue that mass migration made an important contribution to the striking convergence of living standards between poor and rich countries in the West."--Jacket

Growth, inequality, and globalization : theory, history, and policy by Philippe Aghion( Book )

33 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These Raffaele Mattioli Lectures have brought together two of the world's leading economists, Professors Philippe Aghion (a theorist) and Jeffrey Williamson (an economic historian), to question the conventional wisdom on inequality and growth, and address its inability to explain recent economic experience. Professor Aghion assesses the affects of inequality on growth, and asks whether inequality matters: if so why is excessive inequality bad for growth, and is it possible to reconcile aggregate findings with macroeconomic theories of incentives? In the second part Jeffrey Williamson discusses the Kuznets hypothesis, and focuses on the causes of the rise of wage and income inequality in developed economies

Has Latin American inequality changed direction? : looking over the long run by Jeffrey Williamson( )

16 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This book brings together a range of ideas and theories to arrive at a deeper understanding of inequality in Latin America and its complex realities. To so, it addresses questions such as: What are the origins of inequality in Latin America? How can we create societies that are more equal in terms of income distribution, gender equality and opportunities? How can we remedy the social divide that is making Latin America one of the most unequal regions on earth? What are the roles played by market forces, institutions and ideology in terms of inequality? In this book, a group of global experts gathered by the Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean (INTAL), part of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), show readers how various types of inequality, such as economical, educational, racial and gender inequality have been practiced in countries like Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico and many others through the centuries. Presenting new ideas, new evidence, and new methods, the book subsequently analyzes how to move forward with second-generation reforms that lay the foundations for more egalitarian societies. As such, it offers a valuable and insightful guide for development economists, historians and Latin American specialists alike, as well as students, educators, policymakers and all citizens with an interest in development, inequality and the Latin American region

Coping with city growth during the British Industrial Revolution by Jeffrey G Williamson( Book )

21 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coping with City Growth assesses Britain's handling of city growth during the First Industrial Revolution by combining the tools used by Third World analysts with the archival attention and eclectic style of the economic historian. What emerges is an exciting and provocative accounts that have long occupied problem development economists: urban unemployment, underemployment, and the alleged failure of city labour markets to absorb the flood of rural emigrants; the persistent influx of newcomers, which makes it difficult for municipal planners to improve the quality of social overhead; the crowding of migrants into densely packed urban slums with few, if any, social services; and rising density and city size which augment pollution while lowering the quality of the urban environment
