 "Capital in the Twenty-First Century"


Originally published: August 30, 2013

Author: Thomas Piketty

Original title: Le Capital au XXIe siècle


Something a bit different this month a book review on a video. The book is "capital in the 21st Century" by Thomas Pickety, watching the video skips reading 700 pages of this book which is a dynamite academic analysis and proof of the process called polarization of wealth.  


Some may consider what capital and the future have to do with climate change or with preparedness. As with the other books reviewed in the past here, the information in this book lets you look at the roots of climate change and why preparedness is important.


These books prepare you in themselves, because you are able to talk and write with authority on what you have suspected for some time.

With my haste to get things started on this project I neglected to tell a bit about myself.

This project idea has already gone to many people whom I do not know and when I think about it, if a request came in for money from someone I did not know I would probably reply, "Go fund yourself."

With that in mind I will give you the bare bones.

I live in Halifax Nova Scotia was born here and resided here most of my life. 

I must interrupt the resume here to point out that many of you who have received my info are U.S. citizens and because this originates in Canada you may be thinking that this is a Canadian thing. That is not the case. The issue this project proposes to highlight has no borders.

I Graduated from Sidney Stephen high school Bedford Nova Scotia with honors.Went to St Mary's University Halifax. Pursued an English Lit degree with a minor in history. After 3 years did not graduate but took the first year first day advice form a respected professor he said, "You will learn many things here but the most important thing is that you are embarking on a life time of learning". That is what I have done.

I have had several small businesses and several jobs over the years. The most recent job was as a dealer at Casino Nova Scotia. I mention that job because you absolutely do not get a casino job if you fail the security checks or if you or family have a hint of criminal past.

For the last decade I have been a tour guide operating my own tour business then partnering in Van Tours of Nova Scotia and associating with Shore Excursions. A quick Google of my name will verify that I have a good reputation in that business.

This concept of "a life time of learning" has served me well both in my tour business from my interest in history books and for this project from an inexplicably fortuitous chain of books,lectures and videos that have come my way.

A more thorough resume will follow. I hope this is enough for now to put to rest any suspicion that this project might be a scam or the work of a shady character.

I am sincere about this project and will do whatever it takes to prove that so.
