We publish here a recording of Fred Weston, editor of, who spoke at the LSE Marxist society about the new book "Capital in the 21st Century" by the French academic Thomas Piketty. Fred provided a Marxist analysis of the rising inequality we see in society today, explaining the inherent contradictions within capitalism that lead to growing profits and accumulation of wealth at one end, and growing misery and poverty at the other.
