Reflections on Inequality and Capital in the 21st Century

Thomas Piketty
EHESS and Paris School of Economics
May 12, 2017
In this public lecture, Thomas Piketty will present new findings and reflections on global inequality dynamics. In particular, he will stress the need to go beyond the Western-centered historical perspective on inequality regimes developed in his book, Capital in the 21st Century. Piketty will also address the relation between rising inequality and the changing structure of electoral conflict, from class-based to identity-based conflict.
