    What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories.

    Jede politische Ökonomie umkreist die Fragen nach der Evolution von Ungleichheit, der Konzentration von Wohlstand und den Chancen für ökonomisches Wachstum. Aber befriedigende Antworten gab es bislang kaum. Thomas Piketty untersucht Daten aus 20 Ländern, mit Rückgriffen bis ins 18. Jahrhundert, um die entscheidenden ökonomischen und sozialen Muster freizulegen. Seine Ergebnisse setzen die Agenda für eine neue Diskussion über Wohlstand und Ungleichheit.

    Wirklich große Ökonomen beschränken sich nicht auf wissenschaftliche Grundlagenwerke, sondern suchen auch die öffentliche Debatte. Thomas Piketty ist hierfür das beste Beispiel. Der Autor des wohl bedeutendsten Werkes der politischen Ökonomie der letzten Jahrzehnte ist ein kritischer Beobachter seiner Zeit. Hier versammelt er seine auf die Finanz- und Eurokrise bezogenen Interventionen der letzten Jahre und führt dabei zugleich in die großen Themen seines internationalen Bestsellers "Das Kapital im 21. Jahrhundert" ein.

    Thomas Piketty's work has proved that unfettered markets lead to increasing inequality. Without meaningful regulation, capitalist economies will concentrate wealth in an ever smaller number of hands. Armed with this knowledge, democratic societies face a defining challenge: fending off a new aristocracy. For years Piketty has wrestled with this problem in his monthly newspaper column, which pierces the surface of current events to reveal the economic forces underneath.
