There are many paths to the disruption of the reigning political-economic paradigm. I think Krugman has an excellent argument here, even while I disagree with him on money and banking. Piketty planted a minefield with Capital. That he stuck to statistics and did not veer into polemics makes it much harder to dismiss him. I have always loved polemics - to a fault. And ideological purity has long been the bane of the left.
