Capital In The 21st Century

A recent book by French scholar Thomas Piketty is getting a lot of attention.  Everyone knows that the current system is producing very high levels of economic inequality.  This book deals further into the reasons why it provides an ultimate critique of capitalism itself. 

The author argues that extreme inequality is a system design of capitalism and the last few decades of relative equality are not representative.

We don't own this book yet but I am about to order it. In the meantime you might want to check out some of his other work here.
