Yanis Varoufakis – the world-renowned economist and bestselling author – joins us to discuss what a fair and equal society would look like.

Yanis will be in conversation to mark the publication of his new book, Another Now. How should we balance freedom with fairness? How can we generate wealth while protecting the planet? How do we encourage the best of humanity without unleashing the worst? And how far are we willing to go in pursuit of our ideals? Hear Yanis’s thoughts, and make the most of this exclusive opportunity to ask him your own questions.

A thought-experiment of startling originality, Another Now explores through the eyes of three characters - a liberal ex-banker, a radical feminist and a maverick technologist - what would be needed to forge a world without commercial banks or stock markets, where companies are collectively owned and housing and income are guaranteed, but also at what cost.

Yanis Varoufakis is the author of the bestselling Talking to My Daughter: A Brief History of Capitalism and two previous books. Born in Athens in 1961, Yanis Varoufakis was for many years a professor of economics in Britain, Australia and the USA before he entered politics. He is co-founder of the international grassroots movement, DiEM25, and in 2019 won election as one of its representatives in the Greek Parliament. He is currently Professor of Economics at the University of Athens.
