PREVIEW OF COMING ATTRACTIONS

I have now finished reading Thomas Piketty's CAPITAL in the Twenty-First Century.  Tomorrow, I shall begin what I imagine will be a several day long commentary on the book, which I shall complete before I leave for the safari on Tuesday.  It is a very important book, worthy of a good deal of close attention, and I shall do my best both to convey its contents and to analyze and -- in some cases -- to criticize them.

Your analysis is eagerly awaited!

The book has been getting a lot of (good) press, and while I won't have time to read it until the semester ends I did find these two reviews interesting:
James K. Galbraith
http://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/kapital-for-the-twenty-first-century

And Doug Henwood (whose podcast is wonderful):

I'm not sure either would define themselves as Marxists, but they're both good left wing thinkers.

Looking forward to this review.


Henwood is a quasi marxist, in that he takes Marx seriously, and wants to remove capitalism.
