Reviewer comment: A very timely new book. I was beginning to prepare comment and objections to the Piketty book but can now defer for a while to tackle other books. Just read this one written by real experts on the various issues in which they demonstrate Piketty's mistakes and real agenda. But this book goes further in demonstrating the more general and widespread socialist agenda and its mistakes.
