BOOKS: "Thomas Piketty's 'Capital' in 3 minutes."

Novel Explosives is finished, and next up on the nightstand is Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century.

My friend Brandon has been touting Piketty to me ever since Capital was published. With perhaps 30 years elapsing since the last time I delved into Karl Marx's 19-century version, it's time to catch up.

The brief video from BBC provides an overview sufficient for bluffing knowledge. The book's 35-page introduction did the same, and now the tougher sledding has started, but I can do this. I think.
