John Cassidy: Is Surging Inequality Endemic to Capitalism?

John Cassidy: Is Surging Inequality Endemic to Capitalism? | Piketty Blitz | Scoop.it
French economist Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-first Century” is a sweeping account of rising inequality. Reviewing the French edition of the book, which came out last year, Branko Milanovic, a former senior economist at the World Bank, called it “one of the watershed books in economic thinking.” The Economist said that it could change the way we think about the past two centuries of economic history. Piketty has written a book that nobody interested in a defining issue of our era can afford to ignore.
