  • The questions explored in these brilliant essays cut to the heart of our failing economic and democratic systems. If you have been influenced by Piketty's landmark work on inequality, make sure to read this next.

    Naomi Klein, author of 'This Changes Everything' and 'The Shock Doctrine'
  • Piketty has transformed our economic discourse. We'll never talk about wealth and inequality the same way we used to

    Paul Krugman, New York Review of Books
  • Amazing, inspiring, forward-thinking, and pragmatic. There is a pattern forming -- Marx, Keynes, Piketty. As our world changes the surest explanations and most practical solutions change in turn

    Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford
  • The most important work of political economy to be published in decades

    Nick Pearce (on 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'), New Statesman
  • Piketty's treatment of inequality is perfectly matched to its moment ... [He] has emerged as a rock star of the policy-intellectual world ... His work richly deserves all the attention it is receiving

    Lawrence H. Summers, Democracy
  • The author, an inequality expert, is distinguished. The work is acclaimed. The book's empirical detail is already the stuff of legend

    Karl Smith (on 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'), Financial Times blog Alphaville
  • Piketty's economic analysis and historical proofs are breathtaking

    Robert B Reich (on 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'), Guardian
  • French economist Thomas Piketty has written an extraordinarily important book. Open-minded readers will surely find themselves unable to ignore the evidence and arguments he has brought to bear

    Martin Wolf (on 'Capital in the Twenty-First Century'), Financial Times
  • Capital has enraptured the left and infuriated the right

    The Economist
  • The strength of Piketty's book is his close attention to the different sources of inequality, the massive documentation underpinning his history and conclusions, and his impressive culls from sociology and literature, which exhibit the richness of 'political economy' compared to its thin mathematical successor that has attained such prominence. [...] Piketty's book is a timely intervention in the current debate about inequality and its causes

    Lord Robert Skidelsky on 'Capital', Prospect
