    This book has been getting a lot of press as of late. Why have Steven write a review when there's already one out there? :cool:

    Well yes but we want a Lodge expert opinion.

    I haven't read it as the English version has yet to be released but I hope to get a copy when it's available. Don't know for sure but suspect I'll find a version of Capitalism I'm comfortable with.

    Thanks for the posted review, Sherbet.

    This quote from it was interesting to me:
    “If the rate of return on capital remains permanently above the rate of growth of the economy – this is Piketty’s key inequality relationship,” Milanovic writes in his review, it “generates a changing functional distribution of income in favor of capital and, if capital incomes are more concentrated than incomes from labor (a rather uncontroversial fact), personal income distribution will also get more unequal — which indeed is what we have witnessed in the past 30 years.”

    One day I will be taken seriously and be the kid who is asked to revise the book.
