Professor of Economics, James Bradford DeLong at University of California Berkley and Nicholas Gregory Mankiw, the Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics at Harvard University will share their alternative readings and reactions to the recent top selling book, "Capital in the Twenty-first Century" by Thomas Piketty. Is income inequality on the rise? What does the evidence say? How significantly does income inequality shape human welfare? Does economic growth help the poor?
