I was asked the following questions by the ‘Thinkers Forum’, a China-based think tank originating in Guangcha and base in Fudan University. The slideshow accompanies my [presentation] (link to be added) and is in English and Chinese. The answers are my notes for the actual talk.
Q1: You have taught and lived in various parts of the world. What is your observation and first-hand experience with inequality?
Q2:In your opinion, what are the root causes of the global North/South divide?
Q3: Are the current mechanisms, such as World Bank and IMF, narrowing inter-state inequality or reproducing it? In the anarchy of international relations, what mechanisms best work when it comes to narrow wealth gap globally?
Q4: How should countries at different levels of development strategize and plan their course of action in combating inequality?
