Thomas Piketty
’s bestselling Capital in the Twenty-First Century galvanized global debate about inequality. The French economist’s anticipated follow-up, Capital and Ideology, is at once a retelling of global history, a scathing critique of contemporary politics, and a bold proposal for a fairer economic system. Just after the new book’s publication, Piketty discusses his latest provocative ideas with Vincent Hutchings, professor of political science at the University of Michigan; Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize–winning economist, New York Times columnist, and distinguished professor at The Graduate Center; and Leslie McCall, presidential professor of sociology and political science and associate director of the Stone Center on Socio Economic Inequality at The Graduate Center.

Books will be available for sale at the event.
Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.
