Thomas Piketty talks inequality and politics with Class

Thomas Piketty's ground-breaking new book Capital in the Twenty-First Century presents pioneering research that has sparked a huge amount of international debate on global wealth inequality and modern capitalism.

His analysis of the impact of extreme inequality on the economy, society and democracy has presented significant challenges for policy makers intent on tackling growing inequalities.

In June the leading economist joined Class at Parliament to discuss his work with Labour peer and Senior Adviser to Ed Miliband Lord Stewart Wood in front of an audience of MPs and policy makers.
