The book Capital in the XXIst Century (2013) by French Economist, Thomas Piketty, is one of the most important books on wealth inequality of the last 50 years.
The book analyzes, with historical economic data, the trends of contemporary capitalism and how extreme inequalities undermine democratic values.
While the book has been widely discussed in academic circles, its critique is just now making headway into policies at the local and national level.
This book discussion will have the input of David Jaffee PhD, local organizers Luis Zaldivar and Doug Henning.
