Stephen Sackur speaks with Thomas Piketty, a writer and professor at the Paris School of Economics, about his new book Capital in the 21st Century, which has become an unlikely bestseller. With echoes of Karl Marx, his book pushes the belief that modern capitalism works in favour of the entrenched wealth and exacerbates inequality, a theory that has seen Piketty subjected to intense scrutiny.
