內容簡介


亞馬遜「發展與成長經濟學」新書排行冠軍

「這本書既可作為皮凱提《21世紀資本論》主要論點的導讀,也可做為批判他關鍵公式「r大於g 」的精采解說(「r大於g 」即「資本報酬率大於經濟成長率」,這個從長遠來看是正確觀點的公式)。此外,本書關於政治經濟學對貧富不均的討論也令人深思。」- Aaron Reeves《自然》期刊

托瑪.皮凱提的《21世紀資本論》是近年最被廣泛討論的一本經濟學著作,十幾種語言版本賣出了數百萬冊。但是,它對貧富不均與經濟成長的分析,可有正中目標?研究者從此處探索皮凱提促使全球討論的觀點之後該走向何方?一群經濟學家與社會科學家以與皮凱提對話的方式,處理了這些問題。

本書分成五大部分:第一部分包含《21世紀資本論》英文譯者Arthur Goldhammer對皮凱提現象的分析,以及兩位諾貝爾經濟學獎得主Paul Krugman與Robert Solow分別討論皮凱提的觀點。第二部分聚焦在資本的概念,七位學者分別提問皮凱提關於奴隸與權力作為資本以及資本本身複雜本質的問題。第三部分討論因為地理與性別不同所導致的貧富不均現象。第四部份則是從政治經濟的觀點處理資本與資本論的問題。最後一部分是皮凱題以大量文字回應上述各學者的提問。

這是一本不可多得的跨學科著作,它不排拒看似棘手的問題,這也解釋了為什麼那麼多人對《21世紀資本論》如此著迷的原因。

Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century is the most widely discussed work of economics in recent history, selling millions of copies in dozens of languages. But are its analyses of inequality and economic growth on target? Where should researchers go from here in exploring the ideas Piketty pushed to the forefront of global conversation? A cast of economists and other social scientists tackle these questions in dialogue with Piketty, in what is sure to be a much-debated book in its own right.

After Piketty opens with a discussion by Arthur Goldhammer, the book’s translator, of the reasons for Capital’s phenomenal success, followed by the published reviews of Nobel laureates Paul Krugman and Robert Solow. The rest of the book is devoted to newly commissioned essays that interrogate Piketty’s arguments. Suresh Naidu and other contributors ask whether Piketty said enough about power, slavery, and the complex nature of capital. Laura Tyson and Michael Spence consider the impact of technology on inequality. Heather Boushey, Branko Milanovic, and others consider topics ranging from gender to trends in the global South. Emmanuel Saez lays out an agenda for future research on inequality, while a variety of essayists examine the book’s implications for the social sciences more broadly. Piketty replies to these questions in a substantial concluding chapter.

An indispensable interdisciplinary work, After Piketty does not shy away from the seemingly intractable problems that made Capital in the Twenty-First Century so compelling for so many.
