Solid pages. I want to know more about this defrocked Unitarian minister named Thor.
I picked up Capital in the Twenty First Century by the economist Thomas Piketty. Anyone ever read it? One of my golf buddies recommended it to me. It arrives tomorrow. I should have it finished by the end of next week, depending on the writing.
yeah i read it a few years ago when it was the must-have coffee table book of the year. pretty straightforward thesis, in my opinion. the writing is good but doesn't shy away from proper economics (as opposed to political economy). can't imagine it has found many sympathetic ears in america ... but definitely picked up by the usual strand of left-leaning politicos in france, spain, italy and greece (varoufakis, especially).
I remember hearing articles about how he got some fundamental math wrong or his data was off. Of course that doesn't refute the underlining thesis but that's out there.
economics and statistics aren’t exactly apodictic. a right-wing free-marketeer will have a vastly different take with the same data. the underlying theory is more compelling than the methodology/demonstration imo.
Finally got around to finishing it today.

I liked it but the last 50 pages I mostly skimmed. I heard King's books never have good endings and this was true for this one.
What did you think about how the show ended?
