Inequality: A Piketty et al. Moment in the Social Sciences

Olivier Godechot

Sciences Po publications from Sciences Po

Abstract: What does the world success of Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century (2014) reveal? This book is not just one of the most astonishing bestsellers in the social sciences in recent years, but it may also signal an important shift in the way we consider inequality in economics and sociology, in the social sciences and the public arena, in political debate and day-to-day conversations. [First paragraph]
