“Piketty unleashed on real-time economics is a revelation.” —Guardian

Thomas Piketty’s work has proved that unfettered markets lead to increasing inequality. Without meaningful regulation, capitalist economies will concentrate wealth in an ever smaller number of hands. For years, this critical challenge to democracy has been the focus of Piketty’s monthly newspaper columns, which pierce the surface of current events to reveal the economic forces underneath.Why Save the Bankers?brings together selected columns from the period bookended by the September 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers and the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015. In crystalline prose, Piketty examines a wide range of topics, and along the way he decodes the European Union’s economic troubles, weighs in on oligarchy in the United States, wonders whether debts actually need to be paid back, and discovers surprising lessons about inequality by examining the career of Steve Jobs. Coursing with insight and flashes of wit, these brief essays offer a view of recent history through the eyes of one of the most influential economic thinkers of our time.

“Anyone with an interest in politics, monetary policy, or international diplomacy will get a kick out of Piketty’s clear discussion.” —Shelf Awareness

“If you have been influenced by Piketty's landmark work on inequality, make sure to read this next.” — Naomi Klein, author ofThe Shock DoctrineandThis Changes Everything
Incisive commentary on the financial meltdown and its aftermath, from one of the world's leading economists
“The questions explored in these brilliant essays cut to the heart of our failing economic and democratic systems. If you have been influenced by Piketty’s landmark work on inequality, make sure to read this next.” —lc(
