Common Sense on Inequality

April 26, 2014

Tags Free MarketsAustrian Economics OverviewOther Schools of Thought

Peter Klein talks about inequality—how people are different, what determines income and wealth on the free market, why elites are so excited about Thomas Piketty's new book on capital, and how attempts to reduce aggregate inequality through progressive taxation are fraught with difficulty. Klein is the Mises Institute's Executive Director and Carl Menger Research Fellow.
