This interview focuses on Thomas Piketty’s future intellectual plans which build on his Capital in the 21st Century. It explores his interests in expanding databases on wealth and income, and in analysing inequality at different spatial scales, including cities, regions, and global processes. The interview discusses his understanding of new elites and their relationship with older elites, and clarifies his understanding of social class and inheritance. It includes discussions on his relationship with the discipline of economics and with the social sciences more generally. It reflects on conceptual issues, including his theoretical interests in Bourdieu and Marx, and his relationship to socialist theory and politics. His new role in the LSE’s International Inequalities Institute is also discussed.
