Attached is a short chapter from Thomas Oatley's book chapter 16 on international political economy. This is the link
the This is the last chapter of the book, which concerns the benefits and costs of the post-WWII global capitalist regime; specifically, the benefits of economic growth (with dramatic reductions in global poverty and substantial increases in average standard of living) and costs of rising domestic inequality.

If so, which combination of the desirable objectives do you think governments should pursue, and why?
