What are the grand dynamics that drive the accumulation and distribution of capital? Questions about the long-term evolution of inequality, the concentration of wealth, and the prospects for economic growth lie at the heart of political economy. But satisfactory answers have been hard to find for lack of adequate data and clear guiding theories. In Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Thomas Piketty analyzes a unique collection of data from 20 countries, ranging as far back as the 18th century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings will transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality.

Piketty shows that modern economic growth and the diffusion of knowledge have allowed us to avoid inequalities on the apocalyptic scale predicted by Karl Marx. But we have not modified the deep structures of capital and inequality as much as we thought in the optimistic decades following World War II. 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. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, Piketty says, and may do so again.

A work of extraordinary ambition, originality, and rigor, Capital in the Twenty-First Century reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today.

驱动资本积累和分配的宏伟动态是什么?关于不平等的长期演变,财富的集中和经济增长的前景的问题是政治经济的核心。但由于缺乏足够的数据和明确的指导理论,很难找到满意的答案。在二十一世纪的资本中,托马斯·皮凯蒂(Thomas Piketty)分析了来自20个国家的独特数据,可追溯至18世纪,以揭示关键的经济和社会格局。他的调查结果将转变辩论,为下一代关于财富和不平等的思想确定议程。

Piketty表明,现代经济增长和知识的传播使我们能够避免卡尔·马克思所预测的世界末日的不平等。但是我们并没有像第二次世界大战后乐观的几十年那样,改变资本和不平等的深层次结构。不平等现象的主要驱动力 - 资本回报率超过经济增长率的趋势 - 今天威胁到产生极度不平等,引起不满和破坏民主价值观。但经济趋势不是上帝的行为。 Piketty说,政治行动遏制了过去的危险不平等现象,并可能再次这样做。
