Thomas Piketty's "Capital" is quite controversial. Some people have raved while others criticized it severely. I leave it up to you. Piketty is saying that wealth inequalities in the New World are starting to resemble the inequalities we saw in Old Europe and the best way to regulate this problem is by implementing a progressive tax on capital.

    From newf ska man
    Taking a dense economic text and then condencing it makes for a diffiult read. Just get the book, unless it is required in a course and you won’t read the original, but read the book.
