thanks. piketty's critique on capitalism is kinda lukewarm socdem style, he doesn't dare or is too opportunist to get to the real nitty-gritty, however his stuff is still well written and interesting. he's a good economist and deserves more attention.
>it's unbelievable how much all Soviet propaganda about the cons of capitalism in Western countries was exaggerated
i don't think so. like, it was actually far too forgiving.
