Income Distribution and Social Change after 50 years

Department of Social Policy: Richard Titmuss Annual Lecture

Fifty years ago, it was believed that income inequality was falling and that poverty
had largely been eliminated. This lecture returns to Richard Titmuss' masterly crossexamination of the evidence about income inequality and argues that we have much to learn, but also to add.

Tony Atkinson is the centennial professor at LSE. His most recent book is Top Incomes: a global perspective.
