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.
