CAPITAL: A Panel Discussion on Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the 21st Century

capital in the 21st century

Join a panel of Wesleyan professors for a lively debate about Capital in the Twenty-First Century by French economist Thomas Piketty. In his monumental book, Piketty analyzes data from 20 countries, going as far back as the 18th century. His discussion of the political sources of the distribution of income; his attempt to systematically examine how dynamics of capitalism breed wealth concentration; and his willingness to consider how government policies might save capitalism from itself have made him one of the most influential economists of our era.

Panelists:
Basak Kus, Sociology
Donald Moon, College of Social Studies
Melanie Khamis, Economics
Alex Dupuy, Sociology
Gill Skillman, Economics

Date: Tuesday, December 2 – Today!
Time: 4:30 PM
Place: Russell House
