Year (list) - Best business booksWalter Scheidel. Many of our ebooks are available through library electronic resources including these platforms:. As you may be able to tell from the title, Mr. Scheidel makes the case that throughout history, inequality has led only to terrible things think pandemics and wars. For anybody who has ever debated issues related to inequality and their broader meaning, this book provides more than just a powerful thought experiment. Scheidel's depressing view is bound to upset [those] who quite naturally might prefer to live in a world in which events might move political and social systems to figure out a more equitable way to distribute the fruits of growth without the plague, the guillotine or state collapse. Their effects, he demonstrates, have been comparatively trivial and have never compensated for the inexorable march of inequality.
