  • Excellent talk –with poor audio- on a subject at the core of today’s evolving crisis and depression. It elevates economics to the level of a true science by attaching it to politics as Aristotle did and you, as a Greek democrat, point out. By so doing, you indirectly bring forward the need to ‘think the future’ of a humane system without financial or other capitalism–something that 99% of your colleagues are terrified of doing. A future that cannot be separated now from the collective battle against the lethal (anthropogenic) climate change.
