Understanding “New Power”

Understanding “New Power” | Economy & Sociology | Scoop.it

Old power works like a currency. It is held by few. Once gained, it is jealously guarded, and the powerful have a substantial store of it to spend. It is closed, inaccessible, and leader-driven. It downloads, and it captures.

New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it but to channel it.

Migration and welfare in the US and Europe | vox

Migration and welfare in the US and Europe | vox | Economy & Sociology | Scoop.it

European migration exhibits a bias towards low-skilled workers, whereas the US attracts the majority of the world’s skilled migrants. At the same time, the welfare system in Europe is more generous than the one in the US. This column describes an analytical framework that can explain the existence of these differences. Whether a group (union) of member states competes or coordinates its policies has an impact on the skill composition of its migrants and the generosity of the welfare system.

Spatial income inequality in Brazil, 1872–2000

Brazil is one of the most unequal societies in contemporary world. From 1970 to 2000, the Gini coefficients of income per capita distribution remained practically constant around 0.6, one of the highest levels recorded at national level. In the last decade, inclusive growth policies made possible to bring Gini figures to something close to 0.5. For the future, the challenges are how to deepen redistribution with less dependence on income transfer policies.
