Obama and the Pope have read it: “The most important book of the decade” as Thomas Piketty’s non-fiction work “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has been called, not only by Nobel Laureate in Economics, Paul Krugman. Piketty provides evidence of what had generally been suspected: The economic polarization has dramatically escalated, more and more wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few. Possessing nothing causes many people to turn their backs on their homelands that offer no prospects – the economic conditions determine the conditions of life. Reason enough to deal with this book. Staff members of the Kammerspiele meet every two weeks on Monday morning to read together Piketty’s best-selling book with guidance provided by the young economists Tilman Graff and Felix Samy Soliman. You are cordially invited to join us.
Meeting point: stage gate, free entrance, 10 am.
Upcoming dates: May 30, June 13 and 27
