Capital in the 21st Century with Thomas Piketty – Helen Edison Lecture Series


Income inequality is not just a catch phrase, it is the focus of noted economist Thomas Piketty’s groundbreaking bestseller, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century.” Detailing the origins and the implications of our growing economic disparities, the book has earned Piketty comparisons to Adam Smith, John Maynard Keynes and Karl Marx from The New York Times. Join the conversation between Piketty and Peter Gourevitch, founding dean of UC San Diego’s School of Global Policy and Strategy, on what rising income inequality means for society.
