I am wondering whether $\ell^\infty(\mathbb N)$ has the Radon-Nikodým property. Of course $\ell^1(\mathbb N)$ does, but I was unable to find out whether (e.g.) duals of spaces with the R-N property have the R-N property themselves.
Thank you in advance.
UPDATE: A Banach space is Asplund if and only if its dual has the Radon-Nikodým property. On the other hand, a separable space is Asplund if and only if its dual is separable, too. This rules out the possibility that $\ell^\infty(\mathbb N)$ has the R-N property. But is there any other (more) elementary argument for this assertion?
