On Mar. 31, 2014, The New Yorker┬ámagazine’s John Cassidy wrote “Forces of Divergence” about Thomas Piketty’s “Capitalism in the Twentieth-First Century.” ┬áThe book explains the growth of income equality not just in the United States but around the world. Basically, without government controls the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. “If current trends continue, Thomas Piketty sees potentially terrifying consequences.” One proposed solution is an end to tax shelters and global progressive taxation of the wealthy.

Anthony Lane wrote “Candid Camera” about the documentary film “Finding Vivian Maier.” It is the story of a woman who worked as a nanny but took thousands of extraordinary photographs leaving a valuable record of life in the twentieth century.
