For the past three decades, America has steadily become a nation of haves and have-nots. Our incomes are increasingly unequal. This steady growing apart is often mentioned as a troubling indicator by scholars and policy analysts, though seldom addressed by politicians. What economics Nobelist Paul Krugman terms 'the Great Divergence' has till now been treated as little more than a talking point, a rhetorical club to be wielded in ideological battles. But this Great Divergence may be the most important change in this country during our lifetimes-a drastic, elemental change in the character of American society, and not at all for the better. The inequality gap is much more than a left-right hot potato-its causes and consequences call for a patient, non-partisan exploration. Timothy Noah's The Great Divergence, based on his award-winning series of articles for Slate, surveys the roots of the wealth gap, drawing on the best thinking of contemporary economists and political scientists. Noah also explores potential solutions to the problem, and explores why the growing rich-poor divide has sparked remarkably little public anger, in contrast to social unrest that prevailed before the New Deal. The Great Divergence is poised to be one of the most talked-about books of 2012, a jump-start to the national conversation about the shape of American society in the 21st century, and a work that will help frame the debate in a Presidential election year.

This dissertation sought to identify both cultural and economic examples of the existence (or otherwise) of Shanghai's modern status between 1842-1937. In addition, the philosophy of scholars such as Yoshimi Takeuchi and Søren Kierkegaard were also analysed in an attempt to create a concrete definition of 'modernity' itself. The penultimate section of the thesis considers the various arguments presented in the 'Great Divergence' debate and attempts to apply those arguments to a late nineteenth and early twentieth century Shanghai.

Economic divergence meaning
'India, Modernity and the Great Divergence is an original and pioneering book about India’s transition towards modernity and the rise of the West. The work examines global entanglements alongside the internal dynamics of 17th to 19th century Mysore and Gujarat in comparison to other regions of Afro-Eurasia. It is an interdisciplinary survey that enriches our historical understanding of South Asia, ranging across the fascinating and intertwined worlds of modernizing rulers, wealthy merchants, curious scholars, utopian poets, industrious peasants and skilled artisans. Bringing together socio-economic and political structures, warfare, techno-scientific innovations, knowledge production and transfer of ideas, this book forces us to rethink the reasons behind the emergence of the modern world.'

The Ottoman Empire has thus far remained at the margin of the ‘Great Divergence’ debate. Relatedly, no systematic attempt has been made to overcome Eurocentric views about the early modern Ottoman Empire. This paper seeks to fill this gap by problematizing and re-historicizing arguably the core concept of the Great Divergence debate, i.e. capitalism. Drawing from the theory of social-property relations, the paper reconsiders the question of the origin of capitalism, and by doing so, provides not only new comparative insights on the early modern Ottoman Empire, but also the preliminary outlines of an alternative non-Eurocentric reading of world historical development.

В статье показано, что кондратьевская волновая динамика темпов роста глобального ВВП в последние десятилетия, десятилетия Великой конвергенции генерируется именно развивающимися странами, в то время как в предшествующую эпоху Великой дивергенции кондратьевская волновая динамика генерировалась прежде всего наиболее экономически развитыми странами «первого мира». При этом, в ярком контрасте с развитыми
странами, развивающимся государствам на пике Пятой кондратьевской волны удалось не просто достичь очень высоких значений темпов роста ВВП на душу населения,
какие они демонстрировали на пике предшествующей волны, но даже их заметно превзойти. Показано, что важную роль в процессах перерастания Великой дивергенции в Великую конвергенцию играла динамика доли инвестиций в ВВП. Еще в 1960-е годы
между развитыми и развивающимися странами наблюдался очень значительный раз-рыв по доле инвестиций в ВВП в пользу развитых стран, что безусловно вносило свой вклад в продолжение процесса Великой дивергенции. К середине 1970-х годов эти доли сравнялись, в 1990-е годы доля развивающихся стран стала заметно превышать долю развитых, а в 2000-е годы разрыв между развивающимися и развитыми странами (в пользу развивающихся) достиг огромных размеров.

El problema del crecimiento económico en la Europa moderna: del eurocentrismo al asiacentrismo y policentrismo tiempo&economía, 3(1), 19-37 Resumen La historiografía de los últimos treinta años ha modificado sustancialmente los conoci-mientos sobre la historia económica de los tiempos modernos. Los enfoques basados en la ' excepcionalidad ' del proceso histórico europeo, o el ' milagro ' económico, o ' la vía única de la civilización occidental ' , vienen siendo confrontados. Este artículo pretende dar cuenta del estado actual de las principales discusiones, a partir de identificar las principales contribuciones de los historiadores económicos que revierten los grandes constructos historiográficos establecidos por la historia económica de los siglos XIX y XX sobre el crecimiento económico durante la Edad Moderna.

The nineteenth century witnessed an explosive growth of a gap in per capita incomes (and the level of development in general) between the West and the rest of the world that has become recently known as “the Great Divergence” . In the twentieth
century, the Great Divergence continued until the early 1970s; then, in the late 1980s, some convergence between the First and Third World started to be observed. Though this convergence has been noticed already by a number of researchers, many economists still doubt its presence or importance.
In this book we demonstrate that after the 1980s we deal with a global process of the same scale as the process of the Great Divergence and we propose to designate it as the “the Great Convergence” . Furthermore we show that the Great Convergence is a logical continuation of the Great Divergence, and that certain components of the Great Divergence process were already preparing the onset of the Great Convergence in the period of the former’s peak. What is more, we suggest that the Great Divergence and Great Convergence constitute two phases of a single Global Modernization process being tightly
intertwined with other dimensions of Global Modernization as well as with globalization in all its historical phases.

In this paper I argue that the problem of historicist Eurocentrism has been largely solved by Chakrabarty's Provincializing Europe and is implicitly being put into practice in the Great Divergence Debate. However, Eurocentrism in a non-historicist way is resurfacing, challenging academia to reconsider its strong anti-Eurocentric stances.

摘要 在过去的十年中,史学家们在分析比较亚欧地理文化诸多领域的时候,采取了各种方法来进行主题宏大的研究项目,为了使这一研究进程和其中所使用的这些方法更加形象化,全球史的一些研究方法和它们的局限备受关注。在进行这种风格的写作时,全球史研究者们必然会再次对具体的专题,特别是其相关的经济增长和消费行为模式进行研究。但是,在处理欧亚跨文化及欧亚文化对比的过程中,学术著作对地理单元与年代划分给出的定义都不甚清晰。本人将在这篇文章中,通过对中国南部的澳门与欧洲地中海沿岸的马赛的比较这一特定的案例来分析战略性的地缘政治所形成的商务关系、国际关系以及社会经济网络,探讨中欧间的认知与对话。一些学术著作在分析亚洲和欧洲差异时由于没有一个特定的地理和年代划定形成了一定范式上的不同,这一具体比较将有利于缩小这一鸿沟。

The continent of Europe seemed in the spring of 2015 to be in a weaker position relative to other world regions than it had in centuries. Though comparatively small, it had long played a disproportionate role in world history, to the extent that the modern world system of states itself in large parts had been created in the wake of European imperialism. This case examines the deep history of Europe’s so-called “Great Divergence,” the means by which it achieved “modern economic growth,” and the consequences of this moment for the past, present, and future of capitalism.

Capitalismo, Modernidad, Renacimiento, Ilustración, Revolución Industrial, son todas palabras que usamos para explicar al capitalismo, su historia y su estado actual. Sin embargo, estos términos son las categorías que ha construido el fundamentalismo eurocéntrico para justificar su propio punto de vista. Este trabajo es un intento de posicionarnos en el debate sobre el análisis del sistema-mundo a la luz de los aportes realizados en el último tiempo a la llamada Historia Mundial, sobre todo luego de que China aparece en horizonte como el próximo gran centro hegemónico del sistema-mundo, un debate que pone en tensión los términos de la conversación y ya no los temas

En este mundo el hoy parece siempre es obsolescente, y nuestras vidas se desplazan entre constantes actualizaciones. Pero sin embargo, pocas veces nos preguntamos qué es lo que hace al hoy distinto del ayer, qué es exactamente lo cambia. ¿Qué es lo que hace al capitalismo contemporáneo diferente al de antaño? Estas preguntas resultan relevantes para la comprensión del capitalismo histórico, es decir, de un capitalismo que se entiende más allá de las afirmaciones hegemónicas ocultas en el eurocentrismo de la historia universal, ya que como afirmará Enrique Dussel al recibir el Premio al Pensamiento Crítico Libertador en 2010, la Historia es la epistemología subyacente a las ciencias sociales. La Historia Universal es el relato heroico de una Europa-blanca que se dibuja a sí misma como encarnación de la racionalidad humana.

A few centuries ago it would have been impossible to predict that the United States and Canada would become the richest nations in the Americas. In 1500s, the Aztecs and Incas were among the richest civilizations in the world while the United States and Canada were relatively underdeveloped. However, in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries this pattern of prosperity reversed. Latin American countries that were relatively rich in the 1500s are relatively poor today. Conversely, the United States and Canada were far more successful in realizing sustained economic growth over time. This reversal of fortunes for the Americas creates an extremely interesting puzzle for comparative economic theorists. This paper will argue that this reversal can be explained by different changes in institutions during colonial intervention. Specifically, differing factor endowments at the time of colonization led to one type of colonizing strategy in Latin America and another type of colonizing strategy in the United States and Canada. Differences between these strategies caused different types of institutions to emerge that differed in their ability to take advantage of the opportunity to industrialize and become prosperous.
