Abstract

This review of Piketty (2014) argues that, although the author does a fine job outlining capitalism's 'fundamental structural contradiction', it completely misconstrues the set of policies and the kind of agency that would be required to remove it.

Keywords: inequality, Piketty, class, exploitation
