"Population, inequality and global justice" by Sir Tony Atkinson

23 November 2011

Seminar by Professor Sir Tony Atkinson, part of the "Is the Planet Full" Series

"Optimum population" is a subject long discussed in welfare economics. The talk will first discuss the framework for analysis of policy. This leads to a discussion of the implications of population growth for justice at a global level and the evolution of global inequality. The final part of the talk is concerned with population growth and the setting of global goals post-2015.
