Abstract Following new evidence on increasing wealth concentration across several advanced countries, the topic has been attracting a great deal of attention. Estimating the size distribution of wealth and understanding its determinants is an exercise surrounded with high levels of uncertainty and substantial controversies, but remains crucial to guide policy interventions. This short note attempts to link Tony Atkinson’s body of work on wealth concentration to the fast expanding empirical research on wealth measurement as well as on the determinants of its growing concentration.
