Piketty's Three Big Mistakes - Bloomberg View

The first is that Piketty doesn’t take depreciation into account... His second point is that much of the income that went to capital owners in the last six decades has been from capital gains -- from stock prices going up, rather than from an increase in book value (the total net value of the assets owned by companies)... But Rognlie’s third point is perhaps the most interesting. Economists combine a lot of different things into “capital,” such as machines, buildings and land. Rognlie points out that almost all of the increase in the value of capital over Piketty’s timeline comes from land, instead of from other forms of capital. In other words, it’s landlords, not corporate overlords, who are sucking up the wealth in the economy. It’s a dramatic, startling insight that was somehow overlooked before Rognlie came along.
