Peter Lambert

  • Develops a consistent mathematical approach into a self-contained and unified treatment of the distribution and redistribution of income
  • Thoroughly updated edition of a well adopted textbook
  • Substantially enhanced by the inclusion of two new chapters on Poverty and Horizontal Inequity (unfairness in income taxes) - issues of popular interest in which there has been a great deal of recent theoretical research
