Michael Blim

Equality and Economy: The Global Challenge
(AltaMira Press, 2005; 256 pp.)

In an in-depth discussion of issues concerning transnational economies, global anthropology, and the study of work and labor, anthropologist Michael Blim identifies equality as the key global issue of our time—and the value, above all others, that can improve human well-being. Blim demonstrates that using equality as a yardstick for making policy can change the way economies function, allowing them to provide greater well-being to citizens not only in the United States but also worldwide. Blim is an associate professor of anthropology at The Graduate Center.
