Does the functioning of the world economy tend to concentrate wealth and power, or does it tend to diffuse it?
Gilpin quotes
The parallel existence and mutual interaction of "state" and "market" in the modern world create "political economy"; without both state and market there could be no political economy.
Gilpin
The opposing tendencies of concentration and spread are of little consequence in the liberal model of political economy.




Gilpin Robert quotes
A market is not politically neutral; its existence creates economic power which one actor can use against another.
Gilpin Robert
Structuralism argues that a liberal capitalist world economy tends to preserve or actually increase inequalities between developed and less developed economies.
Robert Gilpin quotes
The competitive nation-state system, with all its capacity for good and evil, is spreading in the Third World and is transforming that world.
Robert Gilpin
Trade is the oldest and most important economic nexus among nations. Indeed, trade along with war ha been central to the evolution of international relations.
Gilpin Robert quotes
The clustering of technological innovation in time and space helps explain both the uneven growth among nations and the rise and decline of hegemonic powers.
Gilpin
Despite its increased dependence on the international economy, America continues to behave as if it were either a closed economy or the leader whom everyone else should automatically follow.
Gilpin Robert
The economic success of the Reagan Administration was largely dependent upon the pyramiding of massive debt and the siphoning of capital from the rest of the world.
Robert Gilpin
Through exploitation of its influence over global financial affairs, the United States has been able to cover the costs of its hegemonic position, preserve a false domestic prosperity, and mask the consequences of its relative political and economic decline.




Robert Gilpin quotes
A prolonged and massive increase in aggregate wealth per capita has taken place over several centuries.
Robert Gilpin
Many critics see international trade as a form of cultural imperialism that must be strictly controlled.
Gilpin quotes
The multinational corporation and international production reflect a world in which capital and technology have become increasingly mobile, while labor has remained relatively immobile.
Gilpin Robert
In short, the elimination of the financial legacy of Reaganomics could force the United States to make some exceptionally difficult choices indeed.
Gilpin Robert quotes
I was certain that I was not a Marxist, but I did believe firmly that a connection between economics and politics existed.
Robert Gilpin
There is a pressing need to integrate the study of international economics with the study of international politics to deepen our comprehension of the forces at work in the world.
Robert Gilpin quotes
The world economy diffuses rather than concentrates wealth.
Robert Gilpin
The historical record suggests that the transition to to a new hegemon has always been attended by what I have elsewhere called hegemonic war.
Gilpin Robert
Liberal economists conceive of societies as black boxes connected by exchange rates; as long as exchange rates are correct, what goes on inside the black box is regarded as not very important.
