Editorial Reviews


'A unique and extremely valuable book. With innovative and clear graphic presentations of information, Sutcliffe provides an enlightening view of the inequalities that plague the world economy. Each image is accompanied by a brief explanation and a short, effective commentary. It is the graphs themselves, however, that are the heart of the book. They are marvelous tools for provoking discussion of complex economic issues, and thus they are exceptionally useful in the class room. It is a new proof of an old adage: a picture is worth 1000 words!' - Arthur MacEwan, Professor of Economics, University of Massachusetts

About the Author

Bob Sutcliffe is an economist who has taught at many different universities in Britain, the US, and most recently in Nicaragua and the Basque Country.

Format: Paperback
This book is not a good read- it an excellent calender or mantra. Flip to any page look at the graph, read the explanatory paragraph and then sit back and absorb it. Tuck it away into that space of your brain that you pull out at social events and e-mail one liners, "Did you know that there are 512 Billionares while one in every four people lives off of 1$ a day?" This book does not preach, it just hits you over the head with statistics and easy to understand graphs. If you have ever wondered how countries and people within countries compare to the rest of the world then keep this on your coffee table and EAT IT UP with your coffee. Everything from Literacy Rates to Food to Labor Distribution is in this "book", making it a mini-crash course in World Health, Economics, Politics and Social Change all at once.
Clear, big font, has details if you want them, and half the book is nothin' but pictures.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bob Sutcliffe's graphs and charts are very interesting but his text has the limitation of becoming quickly dated with time. The book was published in 2001 and much of the data in his discussions and tables was derived from 1998 sources. Thus by 2008, when I read his book, the data was 10 years old. This is no fault of Sutcliffe, it is just that a book that is highly dependent on empirical evidence has the vulnerability of being quickly dated. However, in defense of the book, it should be pointed out that many of the trends he identifies are vast societal forces which move very slowly. In many cases 1998 data may be little different from 2008 data.

In the introduction, Sutcliffe has an interesting interpretation of the neo-liberal economic philosophies of Thatcher and Reagan. He explains that these 'invisible hand' economic philosophies do not attempt to address inequality and do not advocate inequality, but rather accept that inequalities will occur in a free market system and that shifts in market forces spread the inequalities within and between countries in the balance of relative advantage. The auto workers of Detroit experience a disadvantage but all US citizens get better deals of Japanese cars. However these displaced workers move to industries or production with higher yield and it is possible that in their new positions they create relative advantage over the workers in a similar field in another country who then experience the economic consequences. Thus inequalities are seen as temporary as societies and the workforce shifts efforts and resources when another country or group of workers takes their work away from them through the process of relative advantage.
