New Economics Collection

We recently acquired books from the estate of the late Sir Tony Atkinson. A significant figure in the last fifty years, working especially on income distribution. An inequality measure, The Atkinson Index is named after him. His collection of books was substantial in both sense of the word. There are also many texts by friends and colleagues that were signed for Atkinson. Where those are in our online listings it will be mentioned, or you may find them on the shop shelves, as with the copy signed by Amartya Sen, left.
