Three Reviews Of Thomas Piketty's New Book
Capitalism in the 21st Century was released in English one week ago. It is making its way into the mainstream of economic thought. These three reviews, which take different slants on the book, are just the beginning. There will be critics of the book but it will challenge the economics profession. It has ignored the problem of income and wealth distribution for too long. One can't read Piketty's book without wondering why the lessons in the book have been ignored, or by trying to refute the evidence that Piketty used to reach his conclusions.
