內容簡介

經濟思想的分水嶺之作

貧富不均漸趨惡化已是當前極受熱議的問題。
它的原因究竟是什麼?儘管眾說紛紜,
但各種議論的資料根據似乎略嫌不足。

皮凱提從稅收與遺產紀錄著手,蒐集整理橫跨二十幾個國家、長達二百多年的數據資料,藉此分析工業革命以來的全球財富分配動態,從中提出一個系統而全面的解釋。這個源自龐大實證資料的見解,其核心概念相當簡單:從歷史證據來看,資本報酬率通常大於整體的經濟成長率,也就是說,有錢人財富增生累積的速度快過一般人工作收入增加的速度,因此富者將愈來愈富,占掉社會大部分的所得與財富份額。

過去的主流意見認為,貧富差距拉大只是經濟發展的初期現象,到了成熟階段,分配不均的情況會逐漸減低。然而皮凱提指出,上述說法只是剛好看到二十世紀初期到中期的發展所導致的誤會。資本主義經濟在那一段時間出現貧富差距縮小的情況,主因在於兩次世界大戰與大蕭條摧毀了許多原本的財富積累,以及當時的高累進稅政策。

皮凱提認為,各國政府應積極改革稅制,減低財富過度集中的趨勢,否則將危害民主社會依照個人才能與努力決定報酬的基本價值,我們也很可能回到十九世紀那種貧富極度不均的景況。本書出版後造成十分罕見的討論熱潮,在經濟學界引起強烈迴響,多位諾貝爾經濟學獎得主亦撰文解析讚許,推崇「此書將改變我們思索社會與研究經濟學的方式」。

“It seems safe to say that Capital in the Twenty-First Century, the magnum opus of the French economist Thomas Piketty, will be the most important economics book of the year―and maybe of the decade.”
―Paul Krugman, New York Times

“The book aims to revolutionize the way people think about the economic history of the past two centuries. It may well manage the feat.”
―The Economist

“Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is an intellectual tour de force, a triumph of economic history over the theoretical, mathematical modeling that has come to dominate the economics profession in recent years.”
―Steven Pearlstein, Washington Post

“Piketty has written an extraordinarily important book…In its scale and sweep it brings us back to the founders of political economy.”
―Martin Wolf, Financial Times

“A sweeping account of rising inequality…Piketty has written a book that nobody interested in a defining issue of our era can afford to ignore.”
―John Cassidy, New Yorker

“Stands a fair chance of becoming the most influential work of economics yet published in our young century. It is the most important study of inequality in over fifty years.”
―Timothy Shenk, The Nation
