The policy proposals Thomas Piketty forgot to mention (Tyler Cowen, April 22, 2014, Marginal Revolution)
[T]here are more straightforward remedies. Social Security privatization is another option, if r > g is truly such a likelihood. Yet Piketty and his boosters won't mention this.

We no longer have policy differences, only arguments over the pace of achieving the consensus position.
