In the latter regard, individual-level data on income inequality and attitudes toward inequality and ethnic-national issues are re-analysed. Chapter 1 starts with a demonstration of the huge cross-national differences in national income distributions. It argues that this issue must remain central for economics and sociology today contrary to the thesis of some theorists of globalization which argue that today the overall differences between nations should be the main focus of research. An overview on economic and sociological research on national patterns of income inequality shows that only a few researchers have investigated this important topic.

It is obvious to ascribe these extreme differences to global injustices, privileges and discriminations. Yet, 70% of the poor do not live in the poorest countries of the world but in those with a middle income seen in global terms. 2 The list of the super-rich of this world is headed in 2012 by a Mexican; among the twenty two richest billionaires there is one Chinese and one Indian. Global inequality, the difference between the mean incomes between the richest and the poorest countries of the world, is blatant and the rich countries of the global North could and certainly should do much more to alleviate poverty in the South.

The one is Latin America, the other Sub-Saharan Africa. The patterns of ethnic stratification in Latin America and particularly in Brazil are analysed in Chapter 9. These patterns are rather unique: In contrast to the Dutch, British and French colonizers, the Portuguese were ready to intermix with the native Indian population as well as with the imported slaves from Africa. As a consequence, no open race discrimination did emerge as in most other countries where whites were living together with blacks and other natives.
