Well, it'd be silly to pit Piketty against Reich. Both reckon that skills should matter. Piketty shows that tradeable capital has consistendly received the lion's share. In his book, he states that when he says "capital", that does not include what some people call "human capital". But clearly, given a choice, he'd side with the humans.
