"I'm reading Thomas Piketty's new book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, a data-driven, economist's account of why there's a persistent, widening income gap in modern global society. His answer is compelling: capitalism is a structurally stacked deck, where those who make their money through owning companies, stocks and other means of production earn more than those whose money comes from their labour. It's leftist analysis that acknowledges the failures of Marx and uses big data to offer revisions. Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, it's an important read due to the strength of its analysis and argument."
