Capital in the Twenty-First Century
Capitalism has been the driving force behind our economy for centuries, but its power brings issues with it. If you feel like you are being left behind while the rich get richer, understanding how capitalism creates wealth inequality will expose what can be done to change that.

Thomas Piketty has gathered data showing trends from all over the world, illustrating the resilience, momentum and earning power of the system. Offering radical ideas for changing the international economy, the book stands as a warning that if reform doesn't come soon then wealth inequality will only continue to grow, making it harder for the lower and middle classes to control their own financial destinies.
