The economist of the moment, Thomas Piketty, author of Capital in the 21st century, is interviewed by Foreign Affairs. The interview reveals Piketty’s challenge to the logic of capitalism of increasing inequality, and an insight into his radical alternatives to escape cataclysmic financial and ideological downfall. Pikertty’s weighty 577 page book has already sold over 200,000 copies and is clearly unnerving the economic world order. Happily, it is on order and will arrive in the University of Lincoln’s Library very soon for those eager to read more.
Piketty continues to ignite the world, and has recently received criticism from no less than the Financial Times, to which gives several ripostes in a detailed letter published online.
