Nobel prize winning economist Angus Deaton says billionaire Donald Trump's U.S. presidency campaign and Britain's shock vote to quit the EU are symptoms of a botched drive to integrate globally.In an interview with AFP, the British-U.S. poverty expert warned that the Republican candidate in November's U.S. elections was "not a good voice" for those neglected by the global movement towards economic and financial integration.Inequalities have grown since the 1970s and become more marked with a globalization drive that hits certain parts of the population, mainly in rich countries, Deaton told AFP, on the publication in French of his 2013 book "The Great Escape".Political fundraising in the U.S., which Deaton described as "really crazy," is also to blame, he said, with elected politicians spending around eight hours every day raising money.
