Understanding global inequality and other big questions with Yanis Varoufakis

Why is there so much inequality in the world?

World-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis will be touring the UK this October in a series of exclusive events to introduce his latest publication Talking To My Daughter About the Economy.

Written as a personal letter to his 11 year-old daughter, Xenia, Yanis sets out to explain what economics is and why it has the power to shape our lives. Come and enjoy an evening with the ex-economics lecturer and former Greek finance minister as he answers his daughter’s deceptively simple questions, helping to make sense of a troubling world while inspiring us to make it a better one.

This three-date tour presented by Penguin Live will stop in London, Brighton and Bristol. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear Yanis discussing some of the most important questions that face humanity today in terms that you don't have to be an economist to understand. 

Pre-publication copies of the book are included with every ticket, meaning you’ll be the first to get your hands on a copy. There will also be the chance to ask Yanis your own burning questions about the economy.
