About this event

This is the inaugural STICERD Atkison Lecture in honour of LSE’s Centennial Professor and STICERD associate Sir Tony A. Atkinson. Roland Bénabou is Theodore A. Wells '29 Professor of Economics and Public Affairs at Princeton University. His recent work lies in three main areas. The first links inequality, growth, social mobility and the political economy of redistribution. The second centers on education, social interactions and the socioeconomic structure of cities and the third is that of economics and psychology ('behavioral economics').
