    The 13th Manchot Lecture took place on January 25, 2018:

     

    Professor Thomas Piketty

    École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS)
    École d'Économie de Paris/Paris School of Economics (PSE)

     

    Rising inequality and globalisation 

     

    Thomas Piketty is the author of numerous articles published in journals and of a dozen books. He has done major historical and theoretical work on the interplay between economic development and the distribution of income and wealth. In particular, he is the initiator of the recent literature on the long run evolution of top income shares in national income. These works have led to radically question the optimistic relationship between development and inequality posited by Kuznets, and to emphasize the role of political, social and fiscal institutions in the historical evolution of income and wealth distribution. He is also the author of the international best-seller Capital in the 21st century (Source: Paris School of Economics).

He is author of Public Policy in an Uncertain WorldIdentification for Prediction and Decision, and Identification Problems in the Social Sciences. He has served as Director of the Institute for Research on Poverty and editor of the Journal of Human Resources. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences, and a Fellow of the Econometric Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the British Academy (Source: Northwestern University).
