The Vintage Podcast with Yanis Varoufakis

"The people of Britain chose Brexit - they did not choose which Brexit."

Yanis Varoufakis, author most recently of Adults in the Room: My Battle with Europe’s Deep Establishment, was intricately involved in the highest levels of negotiations pertaining to Greece’s position within the EU. Now he campaigns globally for an international progressive alliance.

Varoufakis talks with us about the stark choices he faced before, during, and after his tenure as finance minister. Was he willing to become an EU insider or would he remain an outsider? How best to negotiate with technocrats insistent on mutually disadvantageous deals? What will Britain’s future look like after Brexit? And what can we do as citizens to slow the global slide into xenophobia, racism, and hopelessness?

    What happens when you take on the European establishment?

    Read as world-famous, provocative economist, and former Greece finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, blows the lid on his battle with EU officials over the Greek debt crisis.

    Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in recent political history with his attempt to renegotiate Greece’s relationship with the European Union. Yet despite the mass support of the Greek people, and simple logic of his arguments, he succeeded only in provoking the fury of Europe’s political, financial and media elite.
    Exposing the real business taking place behind the EU’s closed doors, Varoufakis reveals all in this fearless, personal account. Adults In The Room is an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship, hypocrisy, collusion and betrayal that will shake the European and economic establishment to its foundations.

    Varoufakis is sending out an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.
