Speaker(s): Professor Sir Tony Atkinson
Chair: Professor Julian Le Grand

Recorded on 1 March 2011 at Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House

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.
