Onwards with DiEM25-Generation-s-EUROPEAN SPRING and our New Deal for Europe

Yanis Varoufakis - 2018-12-14 - Original post - cached version
If Brexit demonstrates that leaving the EU is not the walk in the park that Eurosceptics promised, Emmanuel Macron’s current predicament proves that blind European loyalism is, similarly, untenable. The reason is that the EU’s architecture is equally difficult to deconstruct, sustain and reform....

On November 25, at a hip “event loft” in Berlin, Yanis Varoufakis announced that he’d be campaigning for office in two countries at once. In the spring, the former Greek finance minister had declared his intention to run for prime minister back home in Athens—and in ordinary times, that might have...

Μια ολομέτωπη επίθεση έχει εξαπολυθεί εναντίον της εργατικής τάξης, του περιβάλλοντος, της Δημοκρατίας, της ανθρώπινης αξιοπρέπειας. Ένα παγκόσμιο δίκτυο ακροδεξιών μορφωμάτων εξαπλώνεται διεθνώς, υπονομεύοντας τα ανθρώπινα δικαιώματα, καταπιέζοντας τις αντίθετες απόψεις, προωθώντας τη μισαλλοδοξία...

Λευκός Οίκος, Ουάσινγκτον. Ο Ντίτερ, ο Χέρμπερτ κι ο Νίκολας βρίσκονται εκεί για να διαπραγματευτούν με τον Ρόμπερτ Λάιτιτζερ, το δεξί χέρι του προέδρου Τραμπ για θέματα διεθνούς εμπορίου, και τον Ουίλμπουρ Ρος, τον Αμερικανό υπουργό Εμπορίου. Είναι εκεί για να διασώσουν, μετά τον εξευτελισμό...

A global war is being waged against workers, against our environment, against democracy, against decency. A network of right-wing factions is spreading across borders working to erode human rights, silence dissent, and promote intolerance. To defeat this new Nationalist International, we cannot...

On Sunday morning, the former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis picked up a microphone in Berlin, the German capital where, three years ago, high-stakes negotiations with E.U. leaders culminated in his resignation. Varoufakis, 57, knows many Germans still blame him and his country for the...

Germany is experiencing a paradoxical crisis. Germany is, on paper, flooded by… money. The federal government is in surplus. A tsunami of foreign money is flooding German banks. Families are saving. And even corporations hoard huge amounts of savings. So, why is the political centre not holding?...

Η Γερμανία βιώνει μια παράδοξη κρίση. Στα χαρτιά, η Γερμανία πλημμυρίζει από χρήμα. Η Ομοσπονδιακή Κυβέρνηση έχει καθαρό πλεόνασμα. Ένα τσουνάμι ξένου χρήματος πλημμυρίζει τις γερμανικές τράπεζες. Τα νοικοκυριά αποταμιεύουν. Ακόμα και οι επιχειρήσεις συσσωρεύουν αποταμιεύσεις. Τότε, γιατί καταρρέει...

Οι ευρωεκλογές αντιμετωπίζονται από όλα τα κόμματα ως πρόβα τζενεράλε για τις εθνικές εκλογές, κάτι σαν επίσημη δημοσκόπηση. Ενίοτε, μια αδύναμη κυβέρνηση επισπεύδει τις εθνικές εκλογές ώστε να συμπέσουν με τις ευρωεκλογές (π.χ. το 1989) ώστε να δώσει την ευκαιρία σε δυσαρεστημένους ψηφοφόρους να...

In 2016, shortly before the EU referendum, Yanis Varoufakis warned that the UK was destined for a “Hotel California Brexit”: it could check out but it could never leave. The former Greek finance minister spoke from experience. In 2015, his efforts to end austerity – “fiscal waterboarding” – were...

Άραγε αναλογίστηκε ο κ. Τσακαλώτος τί σηματοδότησε προσυπογράφοντας το ανακοινωθέν του Eurogroup και συντηρώντας τη νεοφιλελεύθερη λογική ότι η λιτότητα που επιβάλλει το Σύμφωνο Σταθερότητας θα μειώσει το ιταλικό δημόσιο χρέος; Ο κ. Τσίπρας, συνειδητοποιεί ότι έτσι ενισχύει τον...

As the Brexit negotiations near crunch point, Theresa May is still battling to keep her party on side as she edges closer to a deal with Brussels. But is it possible to take on the EU in negotiations and win? One man who staked his political career on trying just that was the former Greek finance...

Σε πρόσφατη δημόσια συζήτησή μας στο Λονδίνο, ο Μπράιαν Ινο εξέφρασε τη θεωρία του περί τέχνης: Οπως τα παιδιά εξερευνούν τον κόσμο παίζοντας, οι ενήλικοι παίζουν ζωγραφίζοντας, γράφοντας μουσική, κάνοντας γλυπτά – δημιουργώντας τέχνη με άλλα λόγια. Αρα, συμπέρανε, πρέπει να θεωρείται δεδομένο ότι...

Ladies and Gentlemen, we are here because Italy is being torn by two destructive forces: Brussels and Salvini. By the failed establishment of Renzi-Merkel-Juncker-Moscovici and by the reckless, racist anti-European Salvini project.

Tragically, Brussels and Salvini are working...

One country that symbolised the crisis of the last 10 years was Greece. Its insolvency embarked the country on a long regime of bail-outs and austerity. This August, Greece officially emerged from the crisis, with the OECD forecasting GDP growth again. So, did the austerity work? The former Greek...

Το 2008 οι ελληνικές τράπεζες χρεοκόπησαν. Για μια δεκαετία η πικρή αλήθεια κουκουλώνεται. Πώς; Με όλο και περισσότερα χρήματα που (άμεσα ή έμμεσα) παρέχουν στις τράπεζες (χωρίς βέβαια να έχουν ερωτηθεί ποτέ) οι χειμαζόμενοι πολίτες. Και με μια ακολουθία ψεμάτων που τα ΜΜΕ και το Μνημονιακό...

Brian Eno correctly said that children play to discover how the world works and, once they grow up, art is the adult way of continuing to… play. But, then, he incorrectly surmised that art is not dangerous. True, in the good society art would not be dangerous. But, in our terrible societies the...

A culture war is underway in Europe – not between the ‘anywheres’ and the ‘nowheres’, but between those who use culture to divide – by class, by race, by nation – and those who use it to connect and include. This war is not based in Parliament – but on the street, in our homes, and across the web....

Deregulation. Infinite growth. Self-correcting markets. All are hallmarks of neoliberal thinking. But they’re more than just assumptions about the economy. They undergird much of the most influential thinking about governance right now, and dominate political and economic thinking everywhere. The...

ATHENS – As deadlines approach and red lines are redrawn in the United Kingdom’s impending withdrawal from the European Union, it is imperative for the people of Britain to regain democratic control over a process that is opaque and ludicrously irrational. The question is: How?

2008 marked globalised capitalism’s near death experience. A decade later we have no right to be looking at those events as part of our economic history. The reason? We are still entangled in the crisis that the events of 2008 sparked off. They remain very much at the centre of...

Yanis Varoufakis: Risk has not been diminished, just taken out of sight

Ten years after its near-death experience, capitalism is back to its old ways.

Before 2008 we could all see that global trade imbalances were growing inexorably, creating a glut of savings in surplus countries that flowed into deficit countries, causing house price, stock exchange and debt bubbles whose bursting would never end well. What few could see, however, was that,...
