This post contains no probing analysis or profound insight. Just an offhand, hipshot reaction. I think there’s a big difference between John Maynard Keynes’s views and those of Thomas Piketty. Keynes’s observations are theoretically rock solid but have proven difficult to implement under real world conditions. Piketty’s views are, apparently, theoretically and empirically suspect but politically appealing, at least to some.
