Capital in the Twenty-First Century
Piketty’s book reserves some credits for bringing the issue of inequality back in the spotlight. Many economists do agree with him that adequate policies are urgently needed to contend the worst consequence of income inequality before the problem is growing out of hands. In order to understand the dynamics of inequality more clearly, we need to expand the scope of our policy studies to cover more on the political movements that directly and indirectly support the path of private capital accumulation, and also the formation of political process and policies that can lead any society to its appropriate level of social cooperation between public and private capitals
