Piketty is inequality without blame or politics.
That's the point. MT @DeanBaker13: Thought for the day: How many people will praise Piketty & then turn around and trumpet TPP, TTIP etc

It's the liberal hawk version of the Iraq War. Sure I supported NAFTA and deregulation and yada yada but I didn't want THIS Iraq war.
RT @DLauer: @matthewstoller ugh. do I really have to read it? Why is everyone talking about it?
I found Tim Mitchell's "Carbon Democracy" a much better explanatory book on inequality than Piketty's "Capital". http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2012...
It reminds me of the economists who in 2007-2008 noticed a housing bubble when anyone buying a house noticed one in 2003.
In Capital, Piketty lauds novelists who write about inequality with vivid imagery then lambasts those w/out his data as lazy.
r > g is just an excessively complicated way to say that rich people tend to stay rich. For some reason economists are shocked by this.

Another thing that's striking is how little Piketty deals with hydrocarbons (at least so far) and equality. See: http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2012...
I'm reading Piketty's Capital. One thing that's annoying is that all the reviews come out and frame it before you can read it.
Piketty is the new learn to code.
