Six years after his best seller book Capital in the 21st century, economist Thomas Piketty has expanded his work on wealth inequality. From Europe to India and from medieval times to the present day, he shows how inequality has evolved. In his latest book, Capital and Ideology, he adds a political analysis on the causes of inequality and the rise of populism. Furthermore, the book includes, some may say radical, proposals. For instance, ‘Inheritance for all’ would grant all French citizens 120.000 euros at the age of 25. Wealth taxes should go up to 90% for the richest people and no company shareholder may possess more than 10% of voting rights.

In the lecture, Piketty will further elaborate on his recent work and  the audience will be able to ask burning questions. For more information, go to the website.
