THOMAS PIKETTY    Book Number: 85837    Product format: Paperback

Professor at the LSE, Piketty's work has proved that unfettered markets lead to increasing inequality. Without meaningful regulation, capitalist economies will concentrate wealth in an ever-smaller number of hands. For years, this critical challenge to democracy has been the focus of Piketty's monthly newspaper columns which pierce the surface of current events to reveal the economic forces underneath. Why Save the Bankers? brings together selected columns on the economic and political crisis from the period bookended by the September 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers and the loss of a trillion dollars and the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015. He covers among his topics the Irish disaster, profits, wages and inequality, central banks, the mysteries of the Carbon Tax, GDP vs. National Income, the Greeks (2010), Japan (2011), the idea of Federalism, IMF and must debts always be paid back. In crystalline prose, he decodes the European Union's economic troubles, weighs in on oligarchy in the United States, and discovers surprising lessons about inequality by examining the career of Steve Jobs. Recent history seen through the eyes of one of the most influential economic thinkers of our time. Paperback, 212 pages.
