Lecture Slides in Welfare, Inequality and Redistribution

Thomas Piketty, Paris School of Economics

Slides in PDF format from a public lecture given at the London School of Economics and Political Science in June 2014. Piketty explains the thesis of his best-selling book about inequality. Many of the slides are graphs showing changes in inequality and taxation in various countries over the 20th Century, with notes explaining Piketty's interpretation of these trends. Video and audio of the lecture are available from the same site.
