Abstract

Among the central questions of The Inequality Crisis, a collection of essays published by the World Economics Association, is why inequality was relatively ignored for so long by economists, and the extent to which economics in its current form is equipped to explain inequality now. In his introduction to The Inequality Crisis, Edward Fullbrook discusses the inability of the economics profession to focus on the societal and ecological outcomes of the economic system, which include economic inequality. Fullbrook discusses his hope that this collection of essays will offer a partial corrective to these blind spots of economics, and perhaps some potential paths forward.
