Capital in the Twenty-First Century
Capital in the Twenty-First Century | Thomas Piketty
The main driver of inequality--returns on capital that exceed the rate of economic growth--is again threatening to generate extreme discontent and undermine democratic values. Thomas Piketty's findings in this ambitious, original, rigorous work will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

I loved this book. Honestly, many of the reviews that came out in 2014 (in the NYT, WaPo, etc) did decent justice to his conclusions. What they failed to convey, however, was the depth and breadth of his data and the conservative nature of his assumptions. If you want to understand capitalism for current and future generations, then read this book.

One of many reasons I love #mylocallibrary is because whoever puts together these shelf-end displays has a sense of humor. #riotgrams

2016, Book 17 "Thomas Piketty suggests that a progressive tax should be applied directly on capital globally. This would be accompanied by new transparency laws. While this model is unrealistic, it demonstates an idea for a perfect economy: an economy where wealth inequality is minimal and working classes have a chance to become wealthy through hard work."
