Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Fred Sanders narrates this audiobook, written by the world's leading economist of inequality. Written primarily for non-economists, it looks at the period from 1780-2020 in the U.S., Europe, the U.K., and colonies of the same. By considering some of the root causes of inequality and the resulting long-standing disparities, Piketty analyzes measures of equality and political power and shows the correlation between the two. Sanders is engaged with the arguments put forward. He maintains a steady forward momentum that never lags. Some of the source references in French are not smoothly spoken, but it doesn't detract from the overall presentation. A pdf file of figures is available to listeners who want to dig into the statistics. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
