Piketty on New Times/ Debt Collections (HUM415)

This is an interesting article by French economic historian Thomas Piketty. It’s effectively an endorsement of Bernie Sanders, but more importantly it offers a thumbnail sketch of the transformation in capitalism from the Social Democratic/ Keynesian to the Neoliberal.


Also of note: a man in Houston was arrested by 7 US marshals for a 30 year old student loan, apparently.
