Please use the same topic as the paper proposal I updated.
The instruction is one the PDF.
And here are the comments for the paper proposal by my professor,
I think a paper examining how globalization is linked to rising inequality in rich countries is fine. And, part of that might be to explain why, say, global economic dynamics that “leave behind” the old “traditional working class” folks leads to other sorts of problems (like political extremism or even terrorism). Global factors are also link to immigration to rich countries (but I think this is a rather distinct issue, so I wouldn’t try to address both in one short paper). I realize that a book author you read used the term “immoral inequality” — but I really don’t know what that means or why adding the world “immoral” is helpful. Just looking at patterns and trends of inequality, either within countries or across the globe, is a good enough topic.
Here are some things you’ll need to do in the paper: 1) provide a clear and consistent idea of what you are writing about (there are some inconsistencies in this short write-up) — start with that. 2) provide some data or information on the extent of the sort of inequality your interested in — and maybe how it differs in some places rather than others, or how the “trends” appeear to be going. 3) a clear coherent theoretical/conceptual argument about what “causes” these patterns of inequality. I would expect some attention to various aspects of globalization — but sociologists also have other theories about all this that you might review, too.
