The book of Thomas Piketty “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” is a best seller and has raised many debates and several divided opinions. But here, in our forum, it is secondary to choose among those opinions. What does matter is that the book was written in after-postmodern times. The debates are after-postmodern debates about what can be the after-postmodern economy. Even if we conclude that “nothing changes under the sun” throw decades or centuries, this conclusion still is an after-postmodern conclusion.
All that discussion shows that we are not anymore in “post-modernity”. So, the book of Piketty is also a tool to try to understand what is going on in after-postmodern social structure and what is going to be the after-postmodern economy which seems no to be yet very well established.
