Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wholly agree about the need for the relevant economic history to be considered in any economic comparison. The fact that it blows up so many grand theories is likely a large part of why it and History of Economic Thought has largely been banished from Mainstream Economics. And I agree that Piketty's conclusions are both consistent with and supportive of MMT. But they are not the same thing.
