Inequality as a Danger to Democracy: Reflections on Piketty’s Warning
Sanford Lakoff reﬂects on Thomas Piketty’s warning that the extreme inequality of wealth and income erodes the bonds of social solidarity that sustain democracy. He contends that in the United States, reforms aimed at promoting equality of opportunity, moderating inequality of reward and inheritance, and curbing the inﬂuence of great wealth on elections and legislation, are acutely needed.
