The return of “patrimonial capitalism”: review of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st century

Branko Milanovic ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Thomas Piketty's "Capital in the 21st century" may be one of the most important recent economics books. It jointly treats theory of growth, functional distribution of income, and interpersonal income inequality. It envisages a future of relatively slow growth with the rising share of capital incomes, and widening income inequality. This tendency could be checked only by worldwide taxation of capital.
