The daily Piketty

as Brad Delong put it. Dean Baker links to a couple of his posts about Piketty and discusses some of the left's reactions that Piketty may be appropriated by the right Paul Krugman and the Economic Fringe
"In short, there are some grounds for us fringe types to be unhappy about the current course of mainstream economics, but to my view it’s better to look for allies than enemies. For this reason, I remain happy that Piketty has renewed public focus on inequality, and I will pass over the technical grounds on which he has rightly been criticized by my fellow fringists."
