Global Inequalities and Hierarchies

Transformations in Hierarchies of Wealth and Power: Global and Local

My another broad area of research is the historical transformations in hierarchies of wealth and power. I am particularly interested in examining how the world income hierarchy have changed in world history due to geographical relocation of global capital, changes in the global political economy, escalation of economic/financial crises and political-military struggles among great powers.  I am also interested in explicating the uneven manifestations of these global-level transformations at the local/national levels. Currently, I am co-coordinating the development research working group at the Arrighi Center, which has been investigating the changes in the patterns of global inequality and the trimodal income distribution of the global world-economy in world history.
