Every so often humanity manages genuinely to surprise itself. Events to which we had previously assigned zero probability push us into what the ancient Greeks referred to as aporia: a state of intense bafflement urgently demanding a new model of the world we live in. The Crash of 2008 was such a...

“O ενικός είναι επιβεβλημένος»… Η άποψη του Γιάνη Βαρουφάκη για την προσωπική επικοινωνία είναι σαφέστατη. Ετσι, στη συνέντευξη που παραχωρεί στο «Εθνος της Κυριακής» δεν τηρούμε το «πρωτόκολλο» των εφημερίδων. O υπουργός Οικονομικών της «πρώτης κυβέρνησης της Αριστεράς» του 2015, Γραμματέας του...

Ολοι αναρωτιούνται «γιατί» και όλοι στηλιτεύουν τις ευθύνες των αρμοδίων την ώρα που οι αρμόδιοι επιδίδονται σε στερεότυπες δικαιολογίες τις οποίες διανθίζουν με δραματικές εκκλήσεις για περισυλλογή και πένθος. Ομως κακά τα ψέματα: η ευθύνη βαραίνει το σύνολο της κοινωνίας μας διαχρονικά. Αντίθετα...

ATHENS: A biblical calamity befell the Attica region last Monday. I saw its first sign in the late morning at Athens airport, where I was seeing off my daughter to Australia. A strong whiff of burning wood caused me to look up to the sky, where a whitish-yellow sun beckoned, surrounded by the tell-...

Κατά την παράδοση του Υπουργείου Οικονομικών στον νυν υπουργό του είχα πει: Βασικοί σου στόχοι πρέπει να είναι (α) η αναδιάρθρωση (στην βάση ρήτρας ΑΕΠ – nominal GDP indexing) του χρέους μας προς την τρόικα, και (β) υπαγωγή των ομολόγων που παραμένουν στα χέρια ιδιωτών στο πρόγραμμα Ποσοτικής...

No one can be free if one person is in chains, let alone a whole people. It is in the interests of all, Jews & Arabs, Europeans & Americans, Asians & Africans that the blockade of Gaza and the collective abuse of its people ends now!

Even before Donald Trump drove to tears of dismay NATO’s leaders, Theresa May, the EU’s officialdom and Washington’s own ‘intelligence community’, the writing was on the wall: Trump is methodically dismantling a world order that he no longer believes to be in the interests of the United States’...

As you grow up and experience more of the ups and downs of the economy, you will notice a piece of mindbending hypocrisy: during the good times, bankers, entrepreneurs—rich people in general—tend to be against government. They criticize it as a “brake on development,” a “parasite” feeding on the...

Η Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση αποδομείται. Από τη μία, η εν εξελίξει εσωτερική ευρωπαϊκή κρίση δημιουργεί ρωγμές που, από μόνες τους, ήταν ικανές να φέρουν την κατάρρευση της Ε.Ε. Από την άλλη, έχουμε έναν πρόεδρο Τραμπ ο οποίος με πρόγραμμα και μεθοδικότητα, έχοντας γνώση των ρωγμών αυτών, στοχεύει στην...

Socialism is internationalist. As socialists, we ought to be taking down borders between workers; not putting new ones up. Labour deserves, at a minimum, the same rights and freedoms as capital if we are to be masters of the system, not its servants. The political aim of the Left has always been to...

Three years ago, today, the people of Greece staged a rebellion against their debt bondage. Though this rebellion was overthrown from within almost immediately, it remains a remarkable testimony to the power of a people to say No to the oligarchy, to wrestle control of the narrative of their...

Κάθε περίπου 80 χρόνια η Ευρώπη περνά έναν υπαρξιακό «σπασμό», μια κρίση τόσο βαθιά που καταδικάζει μία ή περισσότερες γενιές στην απόγνωση, αλλά παράλληλα επιταχύνει τον ιστορικό ρου γεννώντας νέες δυνατότητες μαζί με τις νέες απειλές: 1848, 1929 και 2008 – στιγμές ιστορικές που οδήγησαν στη...

The Left must adopt a new, credible EU policy agenda: It’s time to explain how the bloc, and the euro, could be run differently, democratically and sustainably

Italy should be doing well. Unlike Britain, it exports considerably more to the rest of the world than it imports, while its government spends less(excluding interest payments) than the taxes it receives. And yet Italy is stagnating, its population in a state of revolt following two lost decades....
