Il problema della disuguaglianza
In addition to his research, Piketty also teaches post-graduate students at the LSE. His teaching and research approach is inter-disciplinary and he has been involved in the teaching of the new MSc degree in Inequalities and Social Science at the London School of Economics. Research[ edit ] Piketty specializes in economic inequality , taking a historic and statistical approach.
His novel use of tax records enabled him to gather data on the very top economic elite, who had previously been understudied, and to ascertain their rate of accumulation of wealth and how this compared to the rest of society and economy.
His most recent book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century , relies on economic data going back years to show that an ever-rising concentration of wealth is not self-correcting.
To address this problem, he proposes redistribution through a progressive global tax on wealth. A study by Emmanuel Saez and Piketty showed that the top 10 percent of earners took more than half of the country's total income in , the highest level recorded since the government began collecting the relevant data a century ago.
He argues that this was due to a decrease in estate inequalities, while wage inequalities remained stable. The shrinking inequality during this period, Piketty says, resulted from a highly progressive income tax after the war, which upset the dynamics of estate accumulation by reducing the surplus money available for saving by the wealthiest.
This trend will lead to the rise of what he calls patrimonial capitalism, in which a few families control most of the wealth. In collaboration with other economists, particularly Emmanuel Saez , he built a statistical series based on a similar method used in his studies of France.

This research led to reports on the evolution of inequalities in the US,  and on economic dynamics in the English-speaking world and continental Europe. A critic of the Kuznets curve[ edit ] Piketty's work has been discussed as a critical continuation of the pioneering work of Simon Kuznets in the s.
On many measures, Piketty reckons, the importance of wealth in modern economies is approaching levels last seen before the first world war.
From this history, Piketty derives a grand theory of capital and inequality. Other things being equal, faster economic growth will diminish the importance of wealth in a society, whereas slower growth will increase it and demographic change that slows global growth will make capital more dominant.
But there are no natural forces pushing against the steady concentration of wealth.
Piketty closes the book by recommending that governments step in now, by adopting a global tax on wealth, to prevent soaring inequality contributing to economic or political instability down the road.
The book has unsurprisingly attracted plenty of criticism. Some wonder whether Piketty is right to think that the future will look like the past.
Theory argues that it should become ever harder to earn a good return on wealth the more there is of it. Whether or not Professor Piketty succeeds in changing policy, he will have influenced the way thousands of readers and plenty of economists think about these issues.

We are living in a time where economic development is badly considered, a lot of people thinks about economic decrease supposing that the standard of life of the next generations will be worst than ours, by reversing the very concept of progress without giving any rationalisation to their pessimist attitude.
