CUT ME A LITTLE SLACK

I am afraid if you are going to read this blog you will just have to come to terms with the fact that I am an incurable optimist.  Cool reason and a little historical awareness caution me to treat the Piketty phenomenon as a passing fad, a blip, a momentary breath of not entirely rancid air, but the Tigger in me keeps wanting it to be something more.  It won't hurt anyone if I die believing the world is about to put paid to capitalism.  At my wake you can sit on the ground and tell sad stories about the death of kings.

Eeyore enjoys watching Tigger bounce around, but doesn't like to let on. Let 'er rip!

I tried once again to buy Piketty's book today and the guy at the counter explained that Harvard University Press (shockingly) had not anticipated the demand. Everybody, everywhere is sold out -- even Amazon, according to him anyway. Long lasting or not, this is definitely a breath of fresh air!
