Greece’s Varoufakis brings his anti-establishment party to Italy – POLITICO

, 06/12/2022

Yanis Varoufakis tried to rescue Greece from the austerity imposed by the liberal establishment. Then he wanted to rescue the whole EU. Now the motorbike-riding, leather jacket-wearing former Greek finance minister has turned his attention to Italy. “If ever there was a moment it is now,” the economist told POLITICO in an interview to mark the […]

The Techno-Feudal Method to Musk’s Twitter Madness – Project Syndicate op-ed

, 06/12/2022

Immediately after taking over Twitter and pronouncing himself Chief Twit, Elon Musk affirmed his commitment to safeguarding the platform as the “public square” where anything and everything is debated. It was a smart tactic, because it successfully diverted the public’s attention from what Musk is really up to. ATHENS – Elon Musk had good reasons […]

The New Iranian Revolution as an opportunity for the Internationalist Left – Project Syndicate

, 15/11/2022

Iran’s protesters will neither submit to the fascism hidden behind the regime’s pseudo-anti-imperialism nor surrender their country to the hegemony of the United States or their economy to financialized capital. The Western left should learn from them. ATHENS – Dealing with random, unprovoked abuse is never easy. But dealing with random, unprovoked praise can be […]

Rishi Sunak’s ‘grown-up’ austerity is designed to keep zombie capitalism alive

, 10/11/2022

The demise of Trussonomics was a welcome victory for decency and common sense in a minor battle within a broader class war. Sadly, the class that Liz Truss tried to bolster with copious tax and regulatory gifts will win this war by deploying an even nastier, blunter, dirtier weapon: austerity. Britain’s wealthy owe a debt […]

Discussing Technofeudalism, Ukraine & Britain with David McWilliams in Kilkenny – audio

, 07/11/2022

David McWilliams and I sat down in front of a splendid, heartwarming, boisterous Kilkenomics audience to talk about Technofeudalism but also Ukraine, Britain and Europe. The ersatz audio recording is not of the highest quality (sorry!) but it is not terrible either (especially if you have a good headset). Apologies for this but one of […]

Capitalism, Democracy and Europe – Interviewed for the Great Transition Initiative

, 04/11/2019

As harsh austerity and xenophobic nationalism fester in Europe, Yanis Varoufakis discusses his antidote with Tellus Senior Fellow Allen White. What inspired your career trajectory from academic economist to prominent supranational activist? I went into politics because of the financial crisis of 2008. Had financial capitalism not imploded, I would have happily continued my quite […]

Naomi Klein supports MeRA25-DiEM25’s campaign against oil & gas extraction in Greece

, 02/10/2019

This morning, in Greece’s Parliament, MeRA25’s parliamentarians are staging an all-out struggle against the ratification of disastrous contracts between the previous (SYRIZA) government and multinational oil companies. The contracts to be ratified give the companies (including Exxon-Mobil and Total) full licence to drill, extract and exploit gas & oil reserves across Greece’s beautiful seas (Ionian, […]

DiEM25’s European New Deal plan can succeed where Macron and Piketty failed – The Guardian

, 14/12/2018

If Brexit demonstrates that leaving the EU is not the walk in the park that Eurosceptics promised, Emmanuel Macron’s current predicament proves that blind European loyalism is, similarly, untenable. The reason is that the EU’s architecture is equally difficult to deconstruct, sustain and reform. While Britain’s political class is, rightly, in the spotlight for having made a mess […]
