Finally a critical review of Capital 21

by Charles Andrews: Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century: Its Uses and Limits. From the conclusion
 "A section of progressives are excited about Capital 21 because it might help revive social democracy.
For the rest of us, Capital 21 provides solid data about the very rich.  Piketty's work is a demonstration of the adage: follow the money.  Good advice.  But when you need deep understanding of society, follow the labor."
