French economist Professor Thomas Piketty delivered the 13th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture, at the University of Johannesburg’s Soweto campus, on 3 October 2015.

In his address, Piketty – an expert on income inequality, and author of the book Capital in the 21st Century – made a powerful argument for wealth taxation and the creation of a global wealth register.

Other speakers at the event included Nelson Mandela Foundation chairperson Professor Njabulo Ndebele and CEO Sello Hatang, and University of Johannesburg vice-chancellor Professor Ihron Rensburg.
