Sir Anthony Barnes "Tony" Atkinson,[1] (4 September 1944 – 1 January 2017)[2] was a British economist. He was the Senior Research Fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford and Centennial Professor at the London School of Economics.[3] A student of James Meade, Atkinson virtually single-handedly established the modern British field of inequality and poverty studies. He worked on inequality and poverty for over four decades.[4]

Atkinson died on 1 January 2017 from multiple myeloma in Oxford, England, aged 72.[5][6]
