Talking to My Daughter About the Economy
Yanis Varoufakis, explains to his young daughter the world of economics, business, politics, and corruption. As former finance minister of Greece and a cofounder of an international grassroots movement, DiEM25, he has appeared before heads of nations, assemblies of experts, and countless students around the world. Throughout this book, Varoufakis wears his expertise lightly. He writes as a parent whose aim is to instruct his daughter on the fundamental questions of our age to equip her against the failures and obfuscations of our current system and point the way toward a more democratic alternative. Taking bankers and politicians to task, he explains the historical origins of inequality among and within nations, questions the pervasive notion that everything has its price, and shows why economic instability is a chronic risk. Finally, he discusses the inability of market-driven policies to address the rapidly declining health of the planet his daughter’s generation stands to inherit.
