Yanis Varoufakis in Conversation

Is Capitalism dead? Yanis Varoufakis is here to convince you that it is and that it’s been replaced by technofeudalism. In his boldest book yet, Technofeudalism: What Killed Capitalism, bestselling economist Yanis draws on stories from Greek myth to pop culture, from Homer to Mad Men, to explain this game-changing transformation and how it holds the key to understanding our times. A passionate and informative speaker, Yanis will guide us through the story of the power that’s changing our lives.

Yanis became world-famous as the Finance Minister of Greece. He is the author of several books including Talking to My Daughter and Adults in the Room: My Battle with Europe’s Deep Establishment. He is currently Professor of Economics at the University of Greece.
