Karl Marx's Capital in the Twenty-First Century

Thomas Piketty

In his best selling book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, economist Thomas Piketty argues that capitalism has no tendency towards a fair distribution of wealth taking issue with the idea that inequality declines as capitalism matures. Piketty spent 15 years collecting data on global wealth and income – and he uses his figures to argue that the opposite is true. Capitalism, he says, tends naturally towards ever-greater inequality. Piketty's solution? A global wealth tax – something he admits has little chance of becoming a reality. Capital has attracted impassioned responses, both positive and negative. But it has also single-handedly re-kindled discussion of how ewe confront inequality.
