The editors are saddened by the loss of a member of the Oxford Review of Economic Policy’s editorial board.
Tony Atkinson, who died on 1 January 2017, had been a member of our board since 1998. Obituaries in the British and foreign press have recorded his immense and distinguished contribution to economic research and, in particular, his path-breaking work on inequality. Tony was a staunch and highly valued supporter of the Review. His advice was wise, kind, and innovative. He also published within our pages on a number of occasions. He was an inspiration to us all.
