15 As Moyn, suggests (p. 210), Thomas Piketty's book Capital in the Twenty-First Century (2013), with its tough lessons about the rates of return on capital versus labor and the return of historic inequality between the two, has played a particular role alongside populist politics in putting socio-economic justice on the mainstream intellectual-cultural-political agenda.
