At a time when the economic inequality in our society has been acutely exposed, you may be asking yourself: how did we get here? And more importantly, how do we overhaul the system? Expanding on the groundbreaking ideas in rock star economist Thomas Piketty’s unlikely global bestseller, this lively adaptation reveals the ways that concentrated wealth and power have both shaped our past—and is creating a deeply unequal future. With expert insights ranging from Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz to Piketty himself—and nuggets of pop culture wisdom from Jane Austen to The SimpsonsCapital in the Twenty-First Century offers a timely and compelling lens through which to examine the evolution of capitalism, and how we can build a fairer way forward.
