The aim of this two-volume book is to analyze the current state of global and regional inequality, dissect the phenomenal increase in inequality that we have seen occur in recent times, and better understand the complex relationship.

In Inequality, Growth and Investment (NBER Working Paper No), Barro studies a broad panel of countries between and and finds that growth tends to fall with greater inequality when income per capita is less than $2, (in dollars) and to rise with inequality when income per capita is more than $2, The book provides a rigorous and pragmatic argument for why income inequality is a threat to sustained economic growth and what policies should be used to address it.

Coming from the top IMF economists, this new approach may herald a major change in global policies such that attention is paid to both growth. The other is to fail in untying the political knot that blocks growth, leaving it a middle-income country.

Unequal Gains offers a radically new understanding of the economic evolution of the United States, providing a complete picture of the uneven progress of America from colonial times to today.
