KRUGMAN WEIGHS IN ON PIKETTY

On his blog, Paul Krugman gives a preview of his forthcoming review of Piketty.  Since I tackled this book as a naif, knowing very little indeed about macroeconomics, I am pleased to see my spontaneous reaction echoed by someone who really does know what he is talking about.

Later today, I shall try to catch up with your comments on my multi-part review, and expand my discussion of the larger lessons of Piketty's book.

At the moment, Krugman's full review is ungated at the NYRB website,

Worth looking at before the NYRB switches the article over to subscribers only.
