Politics and Inequality

Shirley Cereseto, in her little-known 1982 article, "Capitalism, Socialism, and Inequality," published in the Insurgent Sociologist 11(2): 5-38, is the most comprehensive study of quality of life under capitalism and socialism. She finds that poverty and misery among peoples of the “third world” are not caused by the reasons given by capitalist propagandists (backwardness and/or overpopulation), but rather result from the laws of motion inherent in the capitalist mode of production.


Or read about political economies and quality of life. Or Is Democracy Good for Our Health?
