The French economist, professor and writer Thomas Piketty received international acclaim for his book Capital in the 21st Century. It was a bestseller, which is unusual for a book on economics, and it made Piketty a symbol of the struggle against economic inequality. His book Capital and Ideology appeared in 2019 (the Dutch translation will be published in October). It guides the reader through income inequality in different societies throughout history. Piketty is currently one of the five board members for The World Wealth and Income Database, the largest database with information about the distribution of incomes and wealth among countries. He will be interviewed by Maaike Schoon (journalist, presenter Buitenhof).
