(New York Post) -- The No. 1 bestselling book on Amazon last week wasn’t about plucky teen girls battling for humanity in a futuristic dystopia. It wasn’t about a boy wizard or a college student who likes to be tied up and spanked.

The book is “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” by the ridiculously far-left French economist Thomas Piketty.
