Adjunct Professor of Economics at Grove City College
What: Discussing Dr. Hendrickson’s short book critiquing “Capital in the 21st Century.”
Last year “Capital in the 21st Century,” by French economist Thomas Piketty, took the political world by storm. Piketty argues for a global wealth tax to reduce income inequality. This little booklet written by Dr. Hendrickson picks apart Piketty’s attacks on capitalism. It’s a powerful tool for countering the most common criticisms of the greatest economic system the world has ever known.
