Thomas Piketsty’s most famous book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century, is set to be released on Tuesday, and many people are already talking about it.
The French economist and author of Capital, which examines the relationship between inequality and social mobility in developed and developing countries, is often praised for his understanding of the role of money in the world, and his insight into the ways in which technology is changing the world.
His latest book, A Thousand Plateaus, examines a new form of wealth accumulation in developing countries and the economic and political ramifications of that accumulation.
Here are some of his most famous quotes.
Capital in the 20th Century”I had the best time in life.
My first two years I was unemployed and I was lucky enough to have my parents pay for me to come to Australia and study.”
I was fortunate enough to go to a school where we had a lot of the best teachers in the country.
They were also quite educated and they taught me the basics of economics.
The rest of my time I was on my own and was struggling.
“I thought, ‘What the heck am I going to do with all this knowledge?’
I had no idea how I was going to make a living.
I was very lucky.
It’s just like the best thing in the whole world, that I was able to be educated.
Capital In The Twenty-Second Century”What’s more, I don’t see any reason why this would not happen to any of us.
I am convinced that people will have to work a little harder to live in a world where the rich are not just better off but also more prosperous.
“In the end, it’s not just about the money.
It’s also about the people.”
In the Twenty Second Century”If you were a young person in the 1950s, you probably had a very bad time.
If you were in the 1960s, it was the same thing.
But now we are in a different era.”
If you think about it, it would be easy to say that the rich have been getting richer for a long time, and there is nothing to worry about, and it is a great thing.
We have an economic system that is very, very good.
And that’s why people say, ‘This is the best times in history.’
“The richest people are getting richer, and the middle class is getting poorer.
I’m very happy with the situation we have.”
I have a lot to say, but I’m not going to get into it.
It would be very difficult to discuss it.
