New book on "Rent-Seekers, Profits, Wages and Inequality"

The book of Iván Szelényi (Tárki board member, Yale and NYU Emeritus Professor), co-authored with Péter Mihályi (Professor at CEU and Corvinus University), published by Palgrave Macmillan, provides a timely contribution to contemporary debates about inequality of incomes and wealth. It focuses on the top earning 20% of society (rather than the top 1 or 0.1%), addresses the role of rent in issues such as class reproduction, wealth, sources of social instability and inequality, and provides a “post-classical” narrative of political economy.
