“this trenchant and readable critique sets the eurozone crisis within a much longer context”
London Evening Standard
When Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis got on his motorbike and roared out of government in 2015, many people thought that his time in the spotlight of European politics was over. But since then Varoufakis – one of the most controversial (not to mention glamorous) figures in European politics – has launched DiEM, the Democracy in Europe Movement, urged Irish voters to “send Michael Noonan packing”, and published The Global Minotaur, a coruscating attack on the US (the ‘minotaur’ of the title) which argues that the roots of the global financial crisis go much deeper than is popularly thought. Ahead of the EU summit in June, Varoufakis talks to journalist and broadcaster Vincent Browne about his vision of the way forward for the European economy.
