"It seems safe to say thatCapital in the Twenty-First Century, the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year-and maybe of the decade."
-Paul Krugman,New York Times

"The book aims to revolutionize the way people think about the economic history of the past two centuries. It may well manage the feat."
-The Economist

"Piketty'sCapital in the Twenty-First Centuryis an intellectual tour de force, a triumph of economic history over the theoretical, mathematical modeling that has come to dominate the economics profession in recent years."
-Steven Pearlstein,Washington Post

"Piketty has written an extraordinarily important book...In its scale and sweep it brings us back to the founders of political economy."
-Martin Wolf,Financial Times

"A sweeping account of rising inequality...Piketty has written a book that nobody interested in a defining issue of our era can afford to ignore."
-John Cassidy,New Yorker

"Stands a fair chance of becoming the most influential work of economics yet published in our young century. It is the most important study of inequality in over fifty years."
-Timothy Shenk,The Nation
