This paper contributes to the theorization of inequality in economic globalization as well as in development studies. It addresses the empirical, conceptual and theoretical challenges of exploring the intersection of complex economic inequalities. The study adopts the dependency theory and econometric methodology. It investigates and advances knowledge on economic globalization with analysis of the implications of the intersecting inequality through the revaluation of both actual flows, foreign direct investment and global fiscal transactions in line with economic performance and shows that policy advice that is based on linking equality to economic globalization is critical.
Key words: Economic globalization, trade flows, inequality, underdevelopment.
