Reviews

Best Book of 2018, Business & Leadership"Charming and utterly fascinating . . . It's a sharp analysis mixed with philosophical rumination told in a breezy mix of family anecdotes, Greek myth, world history and a surprisingly deep dive into the hidden meanings embedded in Star Trek and The Matrix . . . It's a book for everyone. Varoufakis dispenses with technical jargon, and when he does use it, he goes to great lengths to clearly define what he's talking about." --Mark Haskell Smith, The Los Angeles Times"Varoufakis has used his considerable talents . . . to demystify complex financial concepts designed to elude us . . . 'Ensuring that everyone is allowed to talk authoritatively about the economy is a prerequisite for a good society and a precondition for an authentic democracy' [he writes]. If this is his goal, then Varoufakis has more than achieved it . . . He clearly and patiently helps readers come to an understanding of just how much power global corporate finance--and the supranational institutions that serve it--wields over our lives . . . If anyone can figure out a way to put a chicken in every pot and a bottle of bubbly on every table, it's Yanis Varoufakis." --Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, The Nation"Varoufakis [promises] to explain economics in a language that everyone can understand, in place of the jargon- infested pseudo-scientific language of mainstream economics....Varoufakis comes up with a vivid comparison between money supply and the market in cigarettes in a German prisoner-of-war camp to explain inflation, deflation and interest rates, in terms any teenager - or adult - will understand . . . Varoufakis does equip his readers with the beginnings of a new language, and punctures myth after myth" -- Anna Minton, The Guardian
