Is Thomas Piketty, with his “Capital” unwittingly working for the big time Oligarchs and Plutocrats?
In the absence of QEs and TARP, would Piketty have written the same “Capital in the Twenty-First Century”?
When and if taxing the wealthy, because of inequality, remember that governments are a big part of the problem.
Could Thomas Piketty´s tax on 1% wealth, be a Trojan horse for Chrystia Freeland’s 0.01% Plutocrats to capture more wealth?
If the last man sitting in the last chair having all the wealth had something sustainable… would that not mean he was worth it?
Professor Piketty is exaggerating the sustainability of wealth… too much of it degenerates… but I also understand that most of us would probably like to be wealthy, even if degenerated.
