Welcome to our inaugural issue of Distinction: The Scholars Magazine, an interactive publication. Read articles and watch videos about current students and alumni from Duke's various scholarship programs. We hope you enjoy reading Distinction.
A.B. Duke alumnus Matthew Rognlie is currently pursuing a PhD in economics at MIT and, in his spare time, taking on Thomas Piketty, the bestselling author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century. In this Washington Post article, learn how a late-night blog post turned into "arguably, the most influential critique of the most influential economics book of the century" and made Rognlie a young economist to watch.
