Yanis Varoufakis interview part 1

7 Sep
Last week Unite Scotland met with Professor Yanis Varoufakis of the University of Athens to discuss his new book, ‘The Global Minotaur’, plus a host of issues concerning the eurozone crisis and the challenges facing the European left.
Part 1 of the interview focuses on The Global Minotaur – an explanation of the various tranches of capitalism and its agenda over the last century, culminating in the 2008 global financial crash and why it happened. 
You can make up your own mind about Varoufakis’ views but we believe you would do very well to find a better explanation of the economic and social mess we find ourselves in today.
If this whets your appetite a bit for economics, the euro-crisis and how this impacts us all or, like us, you (sadly) can’t get enough of this stuff, visit Yanis’ blog where you can find out more about his work and, of course, The Global Minotaur book.
Look out for Parts 2, 3 and 4 in the weeks to come.
