About the Author
Lisa Adkins is Head of the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Sydney.
Melinda Cooper is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Sydney.
Martijn Konings is Professor of Political Economy and Social Theory at the University of Sydney.

"Adkins, Cooper and Konings make a timely and persuasive attack on generational and electoral understandings of contemporary class conflict and class reproduction. This is a must read for understanding the politics around the increasingly Minsky-like dynamics of the housing market."
Herman Mark Schwartz, University of Virginia

"In teasing out the logic of the booming asset economy, Lisa Adkins and her co-authors brilliantly update the analysis of class and inequality for the twenty-first century. This outstanding book will prove a vital point of reference to academics, students, and the wider public."
Mike Savage, London School of Economics

"A timely, engaging and important book. If treated with the seriousness it deserves, The Asset Economy should set the agenda for future socio-logical studies of class and inequality concerned with their economic reproduction."

"This book offers an important and timely analytical lens by which we can better theorize the growth of contemporary inequality and exploitation."
Uneven Earth

"a highly readable and timely intervention"
LSE Review of Books

"The book is an enjoyable read while persuasively and concisely unpacking the very foundations underpinning current societal challenges of inequality. A must read, not only for scholars interested in housing and the political economy of drivers of inequality, but highly recommended for all those implicated in the socio-economic structure it unpacks - in other words, everyone."
