Description
Amartya Sen

Esteemed economist Amartya Sen received the Nobel Prize for his work on social choice theory, welfare economics, development economics, moral and political philosophy, and the economics of peace and war. With an impeccable record of advocacy for tolerance, pluralism, and harmony, he is credited with reintroducing ethics into economic discourse. A Professor at Harvard, Dr. Sen is the recipient of many honors, including the Bharat Ratna—the highest honor awarded by the President of India; the Eisenhower Medal; the French Legion of Honor; and the National Humanities Medal. His new book is “an urgent, passionate, political work” (New York Times Book Review), coauthored with longtime collaborator Jean Drèze, that makes clear the case that India—despite rapid economic growth—cannot move forward without making a significant investment in the essential needs of the people.
