The inaugural IHSS Annual Symposium was made by Professor Thomas Piketty on his 2020 release, Capital and Ideology with responses from Heather Boushey and Martin Sandbu.
Capital and Ideology is the follow-up to Piketty’s bestselling Capital in the Twenty-First Century (2014) which was influential in changing the way politics, ideology and history are thought about. In particular, Professor Piketty focused on inequality and economic structures. The presentation was followed by a response from President and CEO of the Washington Centre for Equitable Growth Heather Boushey and Martin Sandbu, the Financial Times’s European Economics Commentator.
