hahaha .. most famous economist .. dude wrote a convoluted book on Capital (cashing in on Das Kapital anyone?) that was relatively successful as convoluted economic tomes go.
That hardly qualifies him as the world's most famous economist. I'd argue Bernanke, Greenspan, Yellen, Mankiw, Krugman are more famous than that clown. Not to mention Adam Smith, Hayek, Freidman, Keynes, Riccardo, are far more famous in terms of historical significance than fuckin' Pikety.
If anything Piketty is on par with Acemoglu, Kahneman, and Russ Roberts in terms of fame.
And of course he'd favor pinko Sanders - dude leans hard left, what'd you expect him to favor? Fuckin' Gary Johnson. How about you post an article not written by Captain Obvious .. jesus christ man, you do realize this proves about jack and shit, right?
