In his recent article ‘Philosophy and public policy after Piketty’, Martin O’Neill brings out the wealth of political ideas to be found in Capital in the Twenty-First Century. He also explores what research agenda follows from this work and how Piketty’s findings should inform public policy. The article will be the basis for a discussion of income and wealth statistics, the way our understanding of inequality shapes politics and politics shapes our understanding of inequality.
