Tony Atkinson is one of the most prominent academics. He devoted his life to studying and researching inequality. His work has led to the recognition of the economy of equality as a new economic sector. Atkinson tried to show that economics is primarily a social and moral science, which he promotes in his book The Economy of inequality. At present, inequality occupies an important place in public debate. Atkinson comes up with concrete proposals aimed at the existence of alternatives that will contribute to the struggle for social progress and equality. The aim of this paper is to introduce Atkinson's theory of economics of inequality, with emphasis on our global responsibility.
Key words: Inequality / Justice / Equality / Economy issues
