America’s runaway inequality has an engine: our unjust tax system. Even as they became fabulously wealthy, the ultra-rich have had their taxes collapse to levels last seen in the 1920s. Meanwhile, working-class Americans have been asked to pay more. The Triumph of Injustice presents a forensic investigation into this dramatic transformation, written by two economists who revolutionized the study of inequality. Eschewing anecdotes and case studies, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman offer a comprehensive view of America’s tax system, based on new statistics covering all taxes paid at all levels of government. Their conclusion? For the first time in more than a century, billionaires now pay lower tax rates than their secretaries. Blending history and cutting-edge economic analysis, and writing in lively and jargon-free prose, Saez and Zucman dissect the deliberate choices (and sins of indecision) that have brought us to today: the gradual exemption of capital owners; the surge of a new tax avoidance industry, and the spiral of tax competition among nations. With clarity and concision, they explain how America turned away from the most progressive tax system in history to embrace policies that only serve to compound the wealth of a few. But The Triumph of Injustice is much more than a laser-sharp analysis of one of the great political and intellectual failures of our time. Saez and Zucman propose a visionary, democratic, and practical reinvention of taxes, outlining reforms that can allow tax justice to triumph in today’s globalized world and democracy to prevail over concentrated wealth. A pioneering companion website allows anyone to evaluate proposals made by the authors, and to develop their own alternative tax reform at taxjusticenow.org.

La desigualdad económica es uno de los fantasmas que hoy recorren el mundo. Lo mismo en países desarrollados que en los que se esfuerzan por salir de la miseria, este azote contemporáneo confirma de manera dolorosa que el progreso técnico, la apertura de los mercados y la diseminación de la democracia —sobre todo si se queda en su aspecto formal— son insuficientes para que los beneficios del crecimiento se distribuyan de modo equitativo. El World Inequality Lab, una iniciativa académica dirigida por los responsables de este volumen, ha construido en los últimos años la World Inequality Database, sin duda la más confiable fuente de información acerca de la desigualdad en el mundo; con este primer Informe sobre la desigualdad global se inicia la publicación bienal de estudios sobre cómo está evolucionando la distribución del ingreso y la riqueza. Convencidos de que la información de calidad es imprescindible para mejorar los debates sobre la necesaria acción del Estado y la sociedad organizada, los autores presentan aquí tendencias y análisis de la situación en el planeta y en países concretos hasta ahora poco estudiados, como China, Brasil o España, y concluyen con un sólido arsenal de políticas públicas para enfrentar este fenómeno cruel, injusto... y evitable. Tras examinar este informe [...] es fácil creer que la creciente concentración del ingreso es una imparable fuerza de la naturaleza, un efecto económico inevitable debido a la globalización y la tecnología. [...] Pero un análisis cuidadoso de los datos sugiere que la desbocada desigualdad no es algo fatal. Eduardo Porter y Karl Rusell, The New York Times Este libro se basa en una metodología pionera [...] Espero que los políticos puedan leerlo y dejen de contentarse con hacer uso de la palabra. De no hacerlo, una sociedad civil transnacional se apoderará de ella para convertirla en un arma de construcción masiva. Vittorio de Filippis, Libération

Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century showed that capitalism, left to itself, generates deepening inequality. In this audacious follow-up, he challenges us to revolutionize how we think about ideology and history, exposing the ideas that have sustained inequality since premodern times and outlining a fairer economic system.

Extreme candidates are nothing new in American politics, but very rarely do candidates as extreme as Elizabeth Warren have such a talent for presenting radically dangerous policy ideas as if they are compatible with the American experiment. An increasing number of far-left progressives have worked their way into the upper echelons of Democratic Party leadership, but none have generated the college campus enthusiasm and media coddling that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has created. Yet what belies this Harvard professor’s quirky but compelling presentation style are ideas that, as recently as the Obama presidency, were considered far too radical for American life. Worse, the essence of Warren’s platform undermines the economic groups she most claims to want to aid—the frustrated middle class often on the outside of American prosperity looking in. Far from offering the middle class a life line, an Elizabeth Warren presidency represents the greatest threat to the American dream our nation has ever faced.
