Capitalism has been the driving force behind our economy for centuries, but its power brings issues with it. If you feel like you are being left behind while the rich get richer, understanding how capitalism creates wealth inequality will expose what can be done to change that.

Capital in the Twenty-First Century is an eye-opening look at the dominant power of capitalism throughout modern history. Thomas Piketty has gathered data showing trends from all over the world, illustrating the resilience, momentum and earning power of the system. Offering radical ideas for changing the international economy, the book stands as a warning that if reform doesn't come soon then wealth inequality will only continue to grow, making it harder for the lower and middle classes to control their own financial destinies.

You will learn:

What wealth inequality is, how it works, and why it's dangerous

How capitalism's momentum makes it such a naturally unstoppable force

What needs to change in order to limit capitalism's ever-growing power.

Capitalism, at its core, is all about producing goods or services with the primary purpose of acquiring money, instead of trading them for other goods, food, and clothing, as had been done in the past.

However, whilst it is clear that the system is both fascinating and successful, it faces an ever-looming, ever-growing threat from wealth inequality.
