Imagine it is 2025 and that years earlier, in the wake of the world financial crisis of 2008, a new post-capitalist society had been born. In his new book Another Now, published this September, the world-renowned economist and former Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis invites us into a world that is not merely science-fiction. In this conversation with philosopher Srećko Horvat, with whom he founded DiEM25 (Democracy in Europe Movement 2025), Varoufakis will share his thoughts on an alternative present that is worth fighting for.
Srećko Horvat (1983, Osijek, former Yugoslavia) is a philosopher, writer, and political activist. He is an important figure on the post-Yugoslavian New Left and has published several books, organized festivals, and hosted television programs. Together with Yanis Varoufakis, he is one of the founders of the Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM 25). He lives in Zagreb.
Yanis Varoufakis (1961, Athens, Greece) is an economist and politician. In 2015 he was Greece’s Minister of Finance and led negotiations with the EU during the Greek debt crisis. Since 2018 he has been secretary-general of the left-wing party MeRA25, which he represents in the Greek parliament. He lives in Athens.
