  • Piketty fans will be fascinated . . . He explains economic concepts to the lay reader with the kind of clarity that comes from a deep understanding of the topic

    Ben Chu, Independent on Sunday
  • 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 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'
  • Coming on the heels of his masterwork, Capital in the 21st Century, one might expect this to be the lesser contribution. In fact, Piketty unleashed on real-time economics is a revelation: he is lucid and persuasive - all the more so for being proved right about most of the events he is responding to, even though the full facts only came out later ... For an economist, Piketty draws on a vast and unusual store of honesty and emotional intelligence

    Paul Mason, Guardian
  • Well-written and accessible. He ranges widely, to Brazil, Hong Kong, South Africa and Japan. His take, as you would expect, is solidly left-wing but he does not bludgeon. Is this a collection worth buying? For those who did not get enough of him in Capital... yes

    David Smith, Sunday Times
  • 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
  • The perfect accoutrement for a Bernie Sanders rally. It's easier to carry through a crowd than the economist's 685-page best-seller of two years ago, Capital in the Twenty-First Century

  • Thomas Piketty depresses as much as inspires ... Beyond the pleasure of hearing his thoughts, there is a fascination in watching his instant response to events

    Nick Cohen, Observer
  • Piketty is back ... as with Capital, Piketty remains quietly optimistic'

    Andrew Neather, Evening Standard
  • How one economist tried to make sense of a rapidly changing world .... accessible, direct, universally applicable
