First Thoughts on Piketty

" It is truly an impressive work, and I am much enjoying it. I have recently organized a session at the upcoming AEA meeting (January in Boston), where David Weil, Alan Auerbach, and I will be discussing the book, followed by a response from Professor Piketty. Let me offer a few immediate reactions. The book has three main elements: A history of inequality and wealth.

Point 2 is highly conjectural. Point 3 is as much about Piketty’s personal political philosophy as it is about his economics. The bottom line: You can appreciate his economic history without buying into his forecast.
