Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-first Century
The Good, the Bad, and the Awful

Paul Krugman called it "the most important economics book of the year—and maybe of the decade," but some of us at the Marxist Library have a different view. Join us for a discussion of the merits, flaws, and political purpose of Thomas Piketty’s best seller. Gene Ruyle and Charles Andrews will lead the discussion. For a preview, take a look at the review by Charles Andrews: mrzine.monthlyreview.org/2014/andrews220314.html OR http://www.dropbox.com/s/hgwhwa5y1trelx6/Piketty_Andrews_review.pdf

Sunday Morning at the Marxist Library
A weekly discussion series inspired by our respect for the work of Karl Marx and our belief that his work will remain as important for the class struggles of the future as they have been for the past.
