Book launch - Inequality: What can be done?

14 May 2015

Sir Tony Atkinson, University of Oxford will speak about his new book on Monday, 8 June (4.30-6pm) in Lecture Theatre A, University Place

Rich - Poor

Inequality is one of our most urgent social problems and has returned with a vengeance.

In his new book Tony Atkinson argues there is much more we can do to tackle inequality than skeptics imagine. But would his five solutions work in both rich countries and in the developing world?

Chair: David Hulme, Brooks World Poverty Institute


Tickets are free but must be booked online at:

“Tony Atkinson has done more than anyone else in helping us to understand the meaning of inequality, why it is important, how it has changed over time, and how it can be influenced. He is one of the great scholars of our time.” Nicholas Stern, LSE
