Does economic growth reduce inequality? It's been one the year's great debates, spurred by French Economist Thomas Picketty's international best seller Capital in the 21st century. Piketty argues that capitalism has failed to deliver equality, that the rich are simply getting richer. He also argues that peace might not be to our economic benefit. Tyler Cowen has a very different view.
