This book focuses on the impact of financial liberalisation and globalisation on economic growth and inequality worldwide over the past quarter century. It places a particular emphasis on the first fourteen years of this century. It begins by exploring certain assumptions developed as a result of early works in the field, providing a critical review of some of the most important academic works published over the past twenty years. It then goes on to present a comparative measurement of the economic performance of key countries for which data is available in the World Bank database, including G-10 countries, EU countries, and fastest growing countries like China, India, and small-open oil-producing economies.
