Capital in the twenty-first century by Thomas Piketty( Book )

124 editions published between 2013 and 2019 in 17 languages and held by 5,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 this work the author analyzes a unique collection of data from twenty countries, ranging as far back as the eighteenth century, to uncover key economic and social patterns. His findings transform debate and set the agenda for the next generation of thought about wealth and inequality. He 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 if political action is not taken. But economic trends are not acts of God. Political action has curbed dangerous inequalities in the past, the author says, and may do so again. This original work reorients our understanding of economic history and confronts us with sobering lessons for today
The economics of inequality by Thomas Piketty( Book )

74 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Piketty wrote The Economics of Inequality as an introduction to the conceptual and factual background necessary for interpreting changes in economic inequality over time. Piketty begins by explaining how inequality evolves and how economists measure it. In subsequent chapters, he explores variances in income and ownership of capital and the variety of policies used to reduce these gaps. Along the way, with characteristic clarity and precision, he introduces key ideas about the relationship between labor and capital, the effects of different systems of taxation, the distinction between 'historical' and 'political' time, the impact of education and technological change, the nature of capital markets, the role of unions, and apparent tensions between the pursuit of efficiency and the pursuit of fairness"--Provided by publisher

Top incomes over the twentieth century : a contrast between continental European and English-speaking countries by A. B Atkinson( )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on a pioneering research programme on the evolution of top incomes, this volume brings together studies from 10 OECD countries. This rapidly growing field of economic research investigates the top segment of the income distribution by using data from income tax records over the past century. As well as describing the source data and methods employed, the authors also discuss the dramatic changes that have occurred at the top of the income scale throughout the 20th century. This fascinating study is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive historic overview of top income distribution over the last century. It looks at why top incomes shares fell markedly in the first half of the 20th century and why, more recently, there has been a striking difference in the top income distribution between continental Europe and English-speaking OECD countries, like the UK, USA, and Australia. Written by the top names in the field, this seminal work provides rich pickings for those with an interest in inequality, development, the economic impact of war, taxation, economic history, and executive compensation"--Jacket
The hidden wealth of nations : the scourge of tax havens by Gabriel Zucman( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are well aware of the rise of the 1% as the rapid growth of economic inequality has put the majority of the world's wealth in the pockets of fewer and fewer. One much-discussed solution to this imbalance is to significantly increase the rate at which we tax the wealthy. But with an enormous amount of the world's wealth hidden in tax havens--in countries like Switzerland, Luxembourg, and the Cayman Islands--this wealth cannot be fully accounted for and taxed fairly. No one, from economists to bankers to politicians, has been able to quantify exactly how much of the world's assets are currently hidden--until now. Gabriel Zucman is the first economist to offer reliable insight into the actual extent of the world's money held in tax havens. And it's staggering. In The Hidden Wealth of Nations, Zucman offers an inventive and sophisticated approach to quantifying how big the problem is, how tax havens work and are organized, and how we can begin to approach a solution. His reasearch reveals that tax havens are a quickly growing danger to the world economy. In the past five years, the amount of wealth in tax havens has increased over 25%--there has never been as much money held offshore as there is today. This hidden wealth accounts for at least $7.6 trillion, equivalent to 8% of the global financial assets of households. Fighting the notion that any attempts to vanquish tax havens are futile, since some countries will always offer more advantageous tax rates than others, as well as the counterargument that since the financial crisis tax havens have disappeared, Zucman shows how both sides are actually very wrong. In [this book], he offers an ambitious agenda for reform, focused on ways in which countries can change the incentives of tax havens. Only by first understanding the enormity of the secret wealth can we begin to estimate the kind of actions that would force tax havens to give up their practices. Zucman's work has quickly become the gold standard for quantifying the amount of the world's assets held in havens. In this concise book, he lays out in approachable language how the international banking system works and the dangerous extent to which the large-scale evasion of taxes is undermining the global market as a whole. -- Inside jacket flaps
Why save the bankers? : and other essays on our economic and political crisis by Thomas Piketty( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Piketty's work has shown that unfettered markets lead to increasing inequality. Without meaningful regulation, capitalist economies will concentrate wealth in an ever smaller number of hands. Armed with this knowledge, democratic societies face a defining challenge: fending off a new aristocracy. For years, Piketty has wrestled with this problem in his monthly newspaper column, which pierces the surface of current events to reveal the economic forces underneath. Why Save the Bankers? brings together selected columns, now translated and annotated, from the period book-ended by the September 2008 collapse of Lehman Brothers and the Paris attacks of November 2015. In between, writing from the vantage point of his native France, Piketty decodes the European sovereign debt crisis, an urgent struggle against the tyranny of markets that bears lessons for the world at large. And along the way, he 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
The economics of rising inequalities( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Economics of Rising Inequalities brings together work by leading economists on the rise of inequality in the United States and some European countries that has been observed in the last two decades. These contributions are both theoretical and empirical, and address topics such as the role of organizational change at the firm level, the political economy of inequality and redistributive institutions, the contribution of search and matching and segregation by skills, and new empirical evidence on the underlying anatomy of inequality.--
Les hauts revenus en France au XXe siècle : inégalités et redistributions : 1901-1998 by Thomas Piketty( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A landmark in contemporary social science, this pioneering work by Thomas Piketty explains the facts and dynamics of income inequality in France in the twentieth century. On its publication in French in 2001, it helped launch the international program led by Piketty and others to explore the grand patterns and causes of global inequality--research that has since transformed public debate. Appearing here in English for the first time, this stunning achievement will take its place alongside Capital in the Twenty-First Century as a modern classic of economic analysis. Top Incomes in France in the Twentieth Century is essential in part because of Piketty's unprecedented efforts to uncover, untangle, and present in clear form data about patterns in tax and inheritance in France dating back to 1900. But it is also an exceptional work of analysis, tracking and explaining with Piketty's characteristically lucid prose the effects of political conflict, war, and social change on the economic pressures and public policies that determined the lives of millions. A work of unusual intellectual power and ambition, Top Incomes in France in the Twentieth Century is vital reading for anyone concerned with the economic, political, and social history of France, and it is central to ongoing debates about social justice, inequality, taxation, and the evolution of capitalism around the world.--

Changemakers : Thomas Piketty and Naomi Klein( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

French economist Thomas Piketty and Canadian activist Naomi Klein are intellectual super stars who conquer the world with their ideas. They inspire and mobilize millions of people all over the globe. Not only by pinpointing the big problems and their solutions, but also by talking to politicians, meeting with social movements, and doing hundreds of TV interviews that are then shared on a massive scale via social media. With his book Capital in the Twenty-First Century, Piketty caused a stir around the globe. Drawing on historical research, he demonstrates that wealth inequality has risen sharply since the 1980s. Klein sees the imminent climate change as a call-to-action to shape a new economic world order. Her new book This Changes Everything is a hit around the world. Why are we so hungry for these kinds of stories? While politicians often seem powerless, these intellectual stars revive our hope that we are capable of tackling the big problems. But what is their impact on reality? Can Piketty and Klein set the world in motion where governments are stuck? This program joined Klein and Piketty on tour to have a closer look at new-style politics

Inégalités by A. B Atkinson( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in French and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Le succès mondial du dernier livre de Thomas Piketty, qui fut l'élève d'Anthony Atkinson, a remobilisé l'attention sur le fléau que constitue l'explosion des inégalités dans les pays riches. Le diagnostic est désormais bien connu. En revanche, trop peu d'économistes s'attachent à nous expliquer comment inverser la tendance. Et tant d'autres nous désespèrent en ressassant les arguments qui donnent aux gouvernants autant de prétextes pour ne rien faire : l'intervention de l'Etat affaiblirait l'économie ; la mondialisation rendrait toute action impossible au niveau national ; de nouvelles mesures seraient au-dessus de nos moyens, etc. Atkinson met en pièces ces contre-vérités et propose un programme complet, concret et réalisable, même au niveau d'un seul pays. Le problème, souligne-t-il, n'est pas seulement que les riches s'enrichissent toujours plus. Nous sommes aussi inopérants dans la lutte contre la pauvreté, car l'économie change vite, et la majorité de la population ne peut pas suivre. Pour réduire l'inégalité, nous devons faire plus que lever de nouveaux impôts sur les riches. Atkinson prescrit donc des politiques innovantes et ambitieuses dans cinq domaines : le changement technologique, la recherche du plein-emploi, la sécurité sociale, le partage du capital et la fiscalité progressive. Dans ce texte vivant, accessible, Atkinson nous livre une somme incontournable sur le sujet et un message d'espoir dans les possibilités de l'action politique."

Capitalism is an ambitious but accessible six-part series that looks at both the history of ideas and the social forces that have shaped the capitalist world. Featuring interviews with some of the world's great historians, economists, anthropologists, and social critics, Capitalism questions the myth of the unfettered free market, explores the nature of debt and commodities, and retraces some of the great economic debates of the last 200 years."--Container
Les mutations de la société française by Robert Castel( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couv. indique : "Ce livre est le deuxième d'une série de trois volumes qui ont pour ambition de couvrir les principales questions économiques et sociales contemporaines, à l'échelle nationale, européenne et mondiale.

Les textes ici réunis se distinguent par trois qualités majeures : il s'agit à chaque fois de synthèses de l'état des connaissances scientifiques ; leur clarté et leur lisibilité les rendent accessibles sans compromettre leur rigueur ; leur problématisation donne du sens aux questions traitées et suscite l'intérêt du lecteur. Afin de mieux répondre encore aux interrogations sur le monde et notre société, en particulier celles qui se rapportent aux multiples crises auxquelles nous sommes confrontés, l'ouvrage a été actualisé et remanié"
Pour un traité de démocratisation de l'Europe by Stéphanie Hennette-Vauchez( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in German and French and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Comment contenir le déferlement de la vague populiste qui risque de balayer nos démocraties ? Comment prévenir l'éclatement de l'Union européenne ? Pour en finir avec des politiques économiques disqualifiées, mettre l'austérité en minorité et lutter contre les inégalités, il est urgent de démocratiser le gouvernement de la zone euro. Rédigé par une équipe pluridisciplinaire de juristes, politistes et économistes, repris par Benoît Hamon, le projet de traité, ici présenté et commenté, institue une Assemblée parlementaire de la zone euro permettant de promouvoir la justice fiscale et sociale. Le traité peut être adopté en l'état par les pays qui s'y rallieront. Le texte est précédé d'une introduction qui expose sa mise en œuvre de façon pédagogique. L'objectif est que chaque citoyen s'empare du débat européen et que les différentes forces sociales et politiques contribuent à améliorer ce projet et à nous sortir de la sinistrose ambiante."
