"Thomas Piketty credits Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders with waking the larger

American political establishment up to the problem of rising income inequality and channeling the Democratic electorate’s righteous outrage."

“Because he is facing the Clinton machine, as well as the conservatism of mainstream media, Sanders might not win the race,” Piketty observes, but, “in many respects, we are witnessing the end of the politico-ideological cycle opened by the victory of Ronald Reagan at the 1980 elections.”
