The new book by economist Thomas Piketty, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” is a runaway hit, perched at the top of Amazon.com’s bestsellers chart and temporarily sold out on the Web site.
No surprise. Just as the Bible has undergone many new versions, so will the “bible” of Communism, Das Kapital, by Karl Marx. This is one such revision, and the crypto (and not so crypto) Marxists in our progressive classes are snapping it up.
To be honest, though, Piketty should have gone ahead and titled it Das Kapital in the Twenty-First Century.
Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.
