Bloomberg Businessweek Brings Out The Tabloid Snark For Piketty Cover (PHOTO)

May 29, 2014 9:02 a.m.

Bloomberg Businessweek on Thursday revealed the tabloid-style cover for this week’s magazine, centered around French economist Thomas Piketty’s bestselling book on wealth inequality, “Capital in the 21st Century.”

Columnist Megan McArdle’s cover story described the reaction to Piketty’s treatise as “an ideological fervor reminiscent of a Paris mob at the gates of the Bastille.” The book has sparked a lively economic debate, including accusations from the Financial Times that Piketty fudged his numbers that prompted Paul Krugman to weigh in.
