We’ve all become aware of the problem of inequality in recent years—with a few individuals now richer than entire countries. Where we’ve had less clarity is around what to do about it. Combating Inequality is a collection of essays by leading economists, edited by Olivier Blanchard (MIT) and Dani Rodrik (Harvard). It’s based on a conference on inequality held at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, a Washington DC-based think tank. Consider it the collective wisdom of dozens of top economists, several of them also former policymakers. In short, the book we’ve all been waiting for.
