In his 2012 book Inequality and Instability: A Study of the World Economy Just Before the Great Crisis, Professor James Galbraith draws on over 40 years of data to dispel major misconceptions about the rise of inequality in the world economy. His work challenges both those who point to technology and those who point to trade and outsourcing.

The research outlined in Inequality and Instability was based on the work of The University of Texas Inequality Project, a research group consisting mainly of Ph.D. students working under Galbraith's supervision.
