Globalization, inequality and economic policy


In our paper a very simple model is used to analyze the relationship between
trade globalization, inequality and economic policy. Although the local government
exclusively maximizes the welfare of the marginalized (unemployed) people, the inequality
of relative consumption between employed and unemployed will increase with
intensified trade liberalization. In contrast to this result the relative income inequality
may fall in certain situations.
