==> Here’s Piketty responding to the initial FT critique. (HT2 Daniel Kuehn)
==> Here’s Giles (the author of the FT critique) elaborating.
==> Here’s Magness with some more oddities, but I think Piketty might have explained what was going on here, in the first piece linked above. (Note, to say he “explained what was going on” doesn’t necessarily mean it makes sense. I’m just saying, I think on a lot of these cases now, Piketty at least has given an official reply as to why he made what seem to outsiders to be arbitrary moves.)
(BTW a long time ago I should’ve invented a new tag “Piketty” for these blog posts, but I initially was filing it under “Capital & Interest” because that’s what interested me about it. Anyway, I’m not going to bother now.)
