From Paul Krugman’s review of Thomas Piketty’s new book ‘The Economics of Inequality’:

‘I’m sorry to be so negative about a book by such an important figure in our economic thinking. But releasing this youthful effort as if it were a new contribution does a disservice to readers, and I’d argue to the author himself.’

It couldn’t have been easy for Krugman to write this, especially since the two gentlemen know each other and have been invited to panel debates together.
