Inequality is one of our most urgent social problems and has returned with a vengence.
In his new book Tony Atkinson argues there is much more we can do to tackle inequality than skeptics imagine. But would his 5 solutions work in both rich countries and in the developing world?

“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
