Yanis Varoufakis is telling me about the birth of his daughter, Xenia. “What I felt was an immense weight of responsibility,” he says. “Absolutely blind love and the sense of focusing on one individual.” But the experience didn’t make him feel like a different person. “It didn’t change my internal...

“It is something that people find hard to fathom, but in 1980, Greece had the lowest level of debt in Europe. We were save, save, save, like the Chinese are today. Financialization, which is a global phenomenon, hit Greece around then. Suddenly, this culture of parsimony evaporated.”...

To νέο σας βιβλίο που εξηγεί την ιστορία και τις αδικίες του καπιταλισμού, απευθύνεται στην 13χρονη κόρη σας, την Ξένια. Ποια ήταν η γνώμη της;
Η κόρη μου είναι ο πιο σκληρός κριτής μου, οπότε, ακόμα κι αν της αρέσει κάτι, είναι πολύ φειδωλή στις φιλοφρονήσεις. Υπό αυτή την έννοια, χάρηκα με...

Entre adultes, les conversations prennent parfois un tour « très sérieux » à ne pas mettre dans toutes les oreilles… Aussi, quand l’ancien ministre des Finances, en Grèce, nous invite à de nouvelles conversations, nous nous demandons ce qu’il va nous dire de si osé.
