Thomas  Piketty

The French economist came to fame with his book „Capital in the Twenty-First Century“ (Belknap Press, 2014) in which he focuses on wealth and income inequality. Nobel laureates Paul Krugman and Joseph Stiglitz called the book "the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade“. Piketty is professor (directeur d’études) at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) and professor at the Paris School of Economics.
