Globalisation économique, facteur d'inégalités

Abstract : Economic globalization is a powerful factor of vertical and national inequalities, but also of a slow reduction of international horizontal inequalities. Growing inequalities in wealth compounds increasing income inequality. However, the market economy does not work without the support of the states, which, indirectly at least, by establishing the laws favours or supports this situation. Today, the process of globalization has changed the balance of power. The "possessors" have means of communication to support their actions, they justify their wealth through a questionable value system and they continue to develop their wealth at irrational levels of inequality. The runoff theory is only a decoy that justifies the current situation by a better situation for everyone tomorrow. Inter-state organizations are under the orders of liberalism. Companies remain hooked on the idea of maximum profit, by applying violent management rules. The indicators (HDI, Human Development Index or IBN, Index of well-being) and the qualitative expressions of poverty are debatable and testify especially to the durability of this one. The example of poverty in the United States is significant of power relations (sex, territories, gender, etc.)
