This paper aims to provide an introductory overview of Andrew Glyn's economics. Throughout his intellectual career, Glyn's central concern was to understand how economic efficiency can be made consistent with egalitarian objectives. In pursuing this concern, his work engaged critically with developments in contemporary capitalism and with different proposals for promoting egalitarian objectives, including revolutionary socialism, social democratic corporatism, and basic income capitalism. Glyn's legacy is a set of works which provide great insight into the development of capitalism and on the limits and possibilities of egalitarian advance.
