Edward Nathan Wolff (April 10, 1946) is an American economist whose work concerns wealth and wealth disparity. He is a professor of economics at New York University.[2]

His 1974 PhD dissertation at Yale University was entitled "Models of Production and Exchange in the Works of Adam Smith and David Ricardo".

In a 2010 report by economist Richard Vedder and colleagues, Wolff is described as one of few academic scholars who have spoken out against problems in academia that have led to increasing number of college graduates being underemployed.[3]
