Chris Gregory on Capital in the 21st Century

The economic anthropologist, Chris Gregory, provides a great review of Thomas Piketty’s best-seller, Capital in the 21st Century. As he argues, this is not a revitalization of Marx. The title is just to get people to buy the book. At heart, Piketty owes his economic foundations to Ricardo and taxation. In this review, Gregory reflects on his three different readings of the book.
