Interview with Yanis Varoufakis

“Capitalism is dead… now we have something much worse.” – Yanis Varoufakis

During our exclusive interview, Yanis Varoufakis draws back the curtain on European geopolitics, offering a rare and honest take on the state of our global economy and international relations.

World-renowned economist and former Greek finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, reveals how the owners of big tech have become “the world’s feudal overlords”. In his latest book, Technofeudalism: What Killed Capitalism, the bestselling author emphasises this should be a “major worry for everyone… left, right, centre.”

War in Ukraine and its Impact

With us he discusses how the war in Ukraine has impacted the European economy, as well as issues surrounding peace negotiations and subsequent economic recovery. The controversial socialist explains why the new Cold War between China and the US “is the result of this insecurity that Washington D.C. feels, for the first time since 1944, that it’ll lose the monopoly of payments”.

He shares his view on the latest BRICS relations, exploring how it’s impacts are both overestimated and underestimated by various parties.

In hindsight, the former Greek Finance Minister would have been “far less pliant and diplomatic” during his term. “Look at Greece today, everyone celebrates the end of the bankruptcy, but we are more bankrupt than ever… the country has been sold out.”

Yanis Varoufakis offers a revealing glimpse into the complex world of modern political and economic relations.
