The rich data informing Thomas Piketty’s landmark research on inequality
has been instrumental to Capital in the Twenty-First Century‘s success.
Ulrich Atz argues it is highly commendable that Thomas Piketty has made
attempts to share the data files.
*But none of this data is explicitly open for reuse and fails to be
available in machine-readable formats. Without an open licence it’s not

*This is a classic case of good science about to go bad because of the lack
of experimental reproducibility.*
