The Mises View: “Common Sense on Inequality”

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. For more information, visit the Mises Institute online at mises.org.
