    Abstract

    The adoption of neoliberal economic policies during the latter half of the twentieth century resulted in the transference of manufacturing and manufacturing jobs from the core to the periphery. In peripheral nations, the effects of increased investment and the ensuing economic growth simultaneously resulted in upward mobility at a national level and higher levels of within-nation wealth inequality. As wealth inequality increased in India, Russia and China, the percentage of global billionaires located in these three nations increased dramatically from just one per cent in 1987 to 22 per cent in 2011.
