There’s something old and something new from Thomas Piketty. The “new” is The Economics of Inequality, a just-published book about our understanding of inequality. The “old” is the contents: It’s a revised version of Dr. Piketty’s book first published in 1997. To see if you want to put it on your reading list, check out Paul Krugman’s review here.
