Piketty has peaked - the one graph version
This is a bit of summer fun and don't take it too seriously. Earlier in the year the debate over Thomas Piketty's book Capital in 21st Century really took of and the book is probably one of the most discussed economics books ever. Quite impressive. However, the debate now seems to have died down. In fact one could argue that Piketty has peaked. Or that is at least what Google Trends is saying. This is the number (index) of searches for "Piketty" on Google according to Google Trends.
