Ishikawa examines the neo-classical and labor market approaches to income and wealth distribution. He argues that an understanding of how each approach produces differences in income and wealth is vital for the study of income redistribution, particularly in developing countries.

Before his death in 1998, Tsuneo Ishikawa was Professor of Economics at the University of Tokyo.
