    Opis

    What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In   Capital in the Twenty-First Century ,   Thomas Piketty   analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the eighteenth century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

    Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. The main driver of inequality—the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth—today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

    A work of extraordinary ambition, originality, and rigor,   Capital in the Twenty-First Century   reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today.

    O avtorju

    -Thomas Piketty-

    Thomas Piketty (roj. 1971) je francoski ekonomist, predavatelj in raziskovalec. Po študiju ekonomije in matematike ter doktoratu o redistribuciji bogastva (1993) je dve leti raziskoval in poučeval na oddelku za ekonomijo na Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), leta 1995 se je kot raziskovalec pridružil znanstvenoraziskovalnemu središču Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS), leta 2000 pa je začel predavati na École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in od leta 2006 še na Ecole d'ékonomie de Paris (PSE), ki jo je soustanovil in bil njen prvi direktor. Je tudi gostujoči profesor novega inštituta za proučevanje mednarodne neenakosti na London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) in prejemnik številnih nagrad, med drugim za najboljšega mladega ekonomista v Franciji (2002). Zaslovel je z izčrpnimi sintezami o družbeni neenakosti, ki so tudi plod skupnega dela, zlasti z Anthonyjem Atkinsonom, Emmanuelom Saezom idr.

    V slovenščino je prevedena tudi njegova najobsežnejša knjiga Kapital v 21. stoletju, v kateri je še podrobneje zgodovinsko in statistično razčlenil izhodišča in teze, ki jih je razvil in zagovarljal v Ekonomiji neenakosti.
