Event Details

Thomas Piketty's best-selling book, Capital in the 21st Century, serves as a watershed example of the dual contradictions of capitalism. His book proves that the last century was characterized by a sharp divergence between social classes. He also warns that the main driver of inequality—the tendency of returns on capital to exceed the rate of economic growth—today threatens to generate extreme inequalities that stir discontent and undermine democratic values.
Much like Piketty's work, economists at The New School for Social Research strive to analyze the dynamics of capitalism using historical and empirical analysis and, through SCEPA, its policy implications. Following Piketty's remarks, New School Professor Anwar Shaikh and New School PhD Heather Boushey will present their own comments as well as join together in a panel discussion to answer the question, where do we go from here?
