A 700-page economics text about inequality is the best-selling book on Amazon. Everyone is talking about French economist Thomas Piketty's book on rising inequality, Capital in the Twenty-First Century. Things are going wrong around the world -- rising tension in Ukraine, reports of chlorine gas attacks in Syria, peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians break down, the US and Japan can't reach agreement on a trade deal -- and the President seems to be wandering aimlessly around East Asia. Finally, conservatives have fallen out of love with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy.
Today's panel includes Joshua Barro (New York Times), who moderates from the Center; Robert Scheer (TruthDig.com) is on the Left; and David Frum (The Atlantic) is on the Right.
