Economist Thomas Piketty discusses his book “Capital in the 21st Century” and his idea that capitalism threatens democracy if it is not reformed. #DailyShow #TrevorNoah #ThomasPiketty
The pitch to the rich should be that they can become even richer in absolute terms by making changes to reduce inequality as the present distribution of wealth is suboptimal for maximising GDP.
We already lost the war with the Citizens United SCOTUS ruling. So long as corporations are people, you can stop dreaming of a wealth tax.
Wow… The questions he choose to ask the eminent personalities he interviews is just awesome… Great job Trevor and the whole Daily Social Distancing Show Team… 🙂
i have a genuine question, not troll. I am argentinian, and we have that economic model over 20 years. Why that model don’t work in my country?
Capitalism with government subsidies & bail-outs using tax-payers’ money is a joke, even worse than socialism.
I like this interview and it reminds me John Rowl’s theory of justice .thanks to both of you sir. 🙋♀️
What I would ask billionaires and millionaires regarding a wealth tax is, do you want to drive through slums? Do you want to have to live in a gated area? Do you want to have to be afraid for yourself, your loved ones, and your property? If the answer is no, then be prepared to pay your proportional part for a better, safer, cleaner, and more equal environment.
Reform? Get back to work for more winning!!! https://youtu.be/G5asHBqGhZY
theuh accent français ize soh kioute!
I don’t know how Trevor kept a straight face when TP said “Wedgies for everyone”.
I can yell this until my face turns blue and my parents still dismiss me as being radical. They insist capitalism is best economic system. If this crisis doesn’t convince them that capitalism’s priorities are perverse, then I can’t count on them to use logic to make their decisions
What a nice interview,I have enjoyed……those willing to help out https://www.gofundme.com/f/kp5ksh-school-tuition-fund?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
I have little hope for America as long as the Republican Party dominates the government and continues its attacks and sabotage of Obamacare, Social Security, Medicare, public education, the national parks system, environmental protections, etc.
Even when Republicans are not in charge, they are able to obstruct everything that is aimed at helping the poor and middle class. Then they sit back, laugh and point to the Democrats, successfully labeling them as the “tax and spend party” while simultaneously labeling them as the “do nothing party.”
I believe Capitalism must be removed. But I am open to reformation as well until then.
That’s why UBI actually makes sense
Reform??? That ship sailed a long time ago. Capitalism is not worth reforming
Great! Subtitles would make it perfect.
Invite Richard Wolff next
Capitalism, outplayed and dominated by China. A communist ideology to which American have devoted all her resources to bring it all down.
Now, which large corporations can say no to China, she has all of them at her mercy.
Dance, sing and jump as China pleases, your greed has inevitably brought all of you down to your knees.
That’s where it really hurt, you re doing it to yourself
