Würden Sie es noch mit einem anderen Hörbuch von Thomas Piketty und/oder Herbert Schäfer versuchen?
No, I probably wouldn't read anything from Piketty again, now that I know how he generally thinks.
Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?
His analysis of capitalism is empirically very thorough and he does not talk numbers all the time. For example he draws on decriptions of wealth and living standards in well known novels from different periods to illustrate his point, but that does not mean that his arguments are based on anecdotal evidence. The science seems solid, the anecdotes are just there to illustrate.
Sie mochten dieses Buch nicht ... Haben Sie vielleicht irgendwelche rettenden Maßnahmen dafür?
The theory is very thin. With that I mean there's not much of it, not that it's false or sth. I don't see myself in a position to judge that. The solution he offers for inequality, a tax on wealth, might not work for various reasons, but he really does not talk about this very much. There might be other solutions, but he does not consider them even briefly.
Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?
Piketty very thoroughly shows with empirical data that capitalism tends to create inequality and that the period after the WWII was kind of an anomaly that will probably not return. For me personally, this is a point I did not need convincing.
Nevertheless I learned some interesting facts from the book, like the rent (in percent) you can get from capital usually rising with the amount of capital.
