WINNER OF THE FINANCIAL TIMES AND MCKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR 2014

SHORTLISTED FOR WATERSTONES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2014

Chosen as a book of 2014 in Observer, Financial Times, The Economist, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Times

"This book is not only the definitive account of the historical evolution of inequality in advanced economies, it is also a magisterial treatise on capitalism's inherent dynamics. Piketty ends his book with a ringing call for the global taxation of capital. Whether or not you agree with him on the solution, this book presents a stark challenge for those who would like to save capitalism from itself" --Dani Rodrik, Institute for Advanced Study

"The author, an inequality expert, is distinguished. The work is acclaimed. The book's empirical detail is already the stuff of legend." -- Karl Smith, Financial Times Blog Alphaville

"(Piketty's) thesis is simple. The growing concentration of capital in fewer hands has enabled its owners to keep it relatively scarce and thus valuable. (...) You many think that it doesn't require 600 pages to get this message across. This would be wrong. The strength of Piketty's book is his close attention to the different sources of inequality, the massive documentation underpinning his history and conclusions, and his impressive culls from sociology and literature, which exhibit the richness of 'political economy' compared to its thin mathematical successor that has attained such prominence. [...] Piketty's book is a timely intervention in the current debate about inequality and its causes." --Lord Robert Skidelsky, Prospect

"Thomas Piketty who spent long years, during which the mainstream neglected inequality, mapping the distribution of income is making waves with Capital in the 21st Century. Nodding at Marx, that title helps explain the attention, but his decidedly classical emphasis on historical dynamics in determining who gets what resonates in a world where an increasing proportion of citizens are feeling fleeced by the elite." --The Guardian

"The Frenchman's new book Capital in the 21st Century is already causing a stir. Some reviewers have called it the economic book of the year, others of the decade. Piketty's ground-breaking work on the historical evolution of income distribution is impressive." --Paul Sweeney, Irish Times

"With an extraordinary sweep of history backed by remarkably detailed data and analysis, Piketty shows that, for several centuries leading up to World War I, the financial returns to the owners of capital exceeded the rate of growth of modern economies, creating a wide divergence between incomes and wealth and, with that divergence, widening inequality between those owners and people who worked for a living... Piketty's economic analysis and historical proofs are breathtaking." ----Robert B Reich, The Guardian

"Piketty's book Capital is being acclaimed as the most important work of political economy to be published in decades. It has certainly caught the attention of Ed Miliband's inner circle."--Nick Pearce, New Statesman

"Thomas Piketty's Capital is a compelling, evidence based critique of capitalism...It is packed with anecdotes and literary references that illuminate the narrative. It also helps that it is fluently translated by Arthur Goldhammer, a literary stylist who has tackled the works of the likes of Albert Camus." --Andrew Hussey, Observer

"French economist Thomas Piketty has written an extraordinarily important book. Open-minded readers will surely find themselves unable to ignore the evidence and arguments he has brought to bear." -- Martin Wolf, Financial Times

"If you haven't heard of Thomas Piketty, the chances are you will before long. A French economist turning in a book of 640 closely-argued pages might not sound like author of the month, but Capital in the Twenty-First Century is one of those works that catches a moment." -- Ian Bell, Glasgow Herald

Piketty has won interest and enthusiasm on the left of the political spectrum...for this ambitious work. It is not, however, a politically sectarian argument; perhaps that explains why it has become a surprise bestseller. The strength of his thesis is that it is founded on evidence rather than ideology. Piketty has researched data over more than a century in order to derive his understanding of the dynamics of modern capitalism. He is able to point convincingly to a recent reversal of historical trends, so that the share of national income taken by the owners of capital has expanded over the past generation... What Piketty has done is provide a strong factual understanding for how modern capitalist economies diverge from the image of risk-taking and productive commercial activity. At the very least, the book effectively debunks the notion that there is an economic imperative for low tax rates and a smaller state. Oliver Kamm, The Times

A book of such magisterial sweep... Piketty deserves huge credit for kickstarting a debate about inequality and illuminating the distribution of income and wealth. Stephanie Flanders, The Guardian

Magisterial... Bursting with ideas... This book is economics at its best. Philip Roscoe, Times Higher Education

Seven hundred pages on the evolution of inequality in economically advanced societies by the most fashionable new theorist to emerge for a long time. Many have been waiting for such a comprehensive critique of capitalism. --David Sexton, The Evening Standard

Piketty s book Capital is being acclaimed as the most important work of political economy to be published in decades. It has certainly caught the attention of Ed Miliband s inner circle. --Nick Pearce, New Statesman, April 2014

Présentation de l'éditeur

The main driver of inequality--returns on capital that exceed the rate of economic growth--is again threatening to generate extreme discontent and undermine democratic values. Thomas Piketty's findings in this ambitious, original, rigorous work will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

This book is a must. It is not entertaining, romantic, thrilling or mildly boring. It belongs simply to the category of works you must have read if you want to understand the economic world that you live in. And a very small category it is: I would put it on the shelves of my library somewhere between Karl Marx and Joseph Schumpeter. That means something.
This book is not a "good book". It is crucial, essential, seminal. Because it revisits and debunks the old myth of the trickling down economy.
What trickles down to the waning middle class nowadays amounts to a few drops. The main beneficiaries of the modern financial economy are the upper 1% who are in a position to take advantage of a simple (scientific) rule: in a period of moderate growth the ones who can invest massively enjoy systematically a rate of return that is bigger thant the growth rate.
As a non-economist, I am not in a position to verify the accuracy of such a thesis. But I would certainly organise discussions around this topic in all school classes of the world.
Brilliant and unavoidable !

*A full executive summary of this book is available at newbooksinbrief dot com.

The main argument: The unequal distribution of wealth in the developed world has become a significant issue in recent years. Indeed, the data indicate that in the past 30 years the incomes of the wealthiest have surged into the stratosphere (and the higher up in the income hierarchy one is, the greater the increase has been), while the incomes of the large majority have stagnated. This has led to a level of inequality in wealth in the developed world not seen since the eve of the Great Depression. This much is without dispute.

Where there is dispute is in trying to explain just why the rise in inequality has taken place (and whether, and to what degree, it will continue in the future); and, even more importantly, whether it is justified. These questions are not merely academic, for the way in which we answer them informs public debate as well as policy measures—and also influences more violent reactions. Indeed, we need look no further than the recent Occupy Movement to see that the issue of increasing inequality is not only pressing, but potentially incendiary.

Given the import and the polarizing nature of the issue of inequality, it is all the more crucial that we begin by way of shedding as much light on the situation as possible. This is the impetus behind Thomas Piketty’s new book Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

One of Piketty’s main concerns in the book is to put the issue of inequality in its broader historical context.

Ce livre est assez déprimant, il était donc nécessaire. Il vous permettra de dépasser l’écume des jours et de comprendre que le monde d’hier a déjà disparu et que celui de demain ressemblera vraisemblablement à celui d’avant-hier.

En effet la vieille malédiction invoquée par Karl Marx et tant d’autres sur l’accroissement infini du capital semblait n’avoir été qu’une méchante histoire propre à effrayer les p’ôvres gens. Les trente glorieuses n’ont-elles pas réhabilité l’homme au détriment du capital ?

Or ne sommes-nous pas tous dans l’attente du retour de ces trente glorieuses, considérées comme l’état normal et naturel de l’économie européenne ?

Comment l’auteur s’est-il donc débrouillé pour faire tomber ces certitudes ? Et bien, à l’inverse de bien trop d’économistes, il a initié une démarche scientifique (je vous assure, c’est extrêmement rare) et a tenté de mesurer le capital accumulé de la fin du XVIIIème siècle à nos jours grâce aux archives disponibles.

Il s’est avéré d’ailleurs que c’est la France qui dispose des données les plus complètes au monde, avec d’autres pays européens juste derrière. Ce sera donc l’Europe qui sera pendant longtemps au cœur de ce livre, et c’est normal, c’est là que les mouvements de capitaux ont été les plus violents.

Les premiers chapitres du livre sont alors consacrés au processus normal d’accumulation du capital dans laquelle l’auteur entre avec beaucoup, trop, de pédagogie et d’interminables explications.
