Public Lecture: Reflections on Inequality and Capital in the 21st Century

Due to overwhelming response, we have reached capacity for this lecture and registration is now closed. Unfortunately, walk-ins cannot be accommodated. The talk will be live streamed beginning at 5:30 p.m.

In this public lecture, Thomas Piketty will present new findings and reflections on global inequality dynamics. In particular, he will stress the need to go beyond the Western-centered historical perspective on inequality regimes developed in his book, Capital in the 21st Century. Piketty will also address the relation between rising inequality and the changing structure of electoral conflict, from class-based to identity-based conflict.

This event is part of a new series of Lectures on Public Policy funded by an anonymous gift and curated by the School of Social Science that aim to address issues of broad import relevant to contemporary politics, social conditions, and scientific matters.
