Praise for Time for Socialism:

"Lively, thought-provoking, grounded in facts, and resolutely optimistic--these essays grapple with the big questions of our time, from the rise of Trumpism and Brexit, to gender inequality and wealth taxation."--Gabriel Zucman, University of California, Berkeley

Praise for Capital in the Twenty-First Century:

"Piketty [is] arguably the world's leading expert on income and wealth inequality."--Paul Krugman, New York Times

"Piketty has emerged as a rock star of the policy-intellectual world. . . . But make no mistake, his work richly deserves all the attention it is receiving."--Lawrence H. Summers, Democracy

As a correspondent for the French newspaper Le Monde, world-renowned economist Thomas Piketty has documented the rise and fall of Trump, the drama of Brexit, Emmanuel Macron's ascendance to the French presidency, the unfolding of a global pandemic, and much else besides, always from the perspective of his fight for a more equitable world. This collection brings together those articles and is prefaced by an extended introductory essay, in which Piketty argues that the time has come to support an inclusive and expansive conception of socialism as a counterweight against the hypercapitalism that defines our current economic ideology. These essays offer a first draft of history from one of the world's leading economists and public figures, detailing the struggle against inequalities and tax evasion, in favor of a federalist Europe and a globalization more respectful of work and the environment.
