Gillian Tett & Yanis Varoufakis, through their books Anthrovision & Another Now, revisit capitalism – An IQ2 event, live and in situ, Union Chapel, London, Monday 4th Oct 2021

20/09/2021 by


  • Yanis Varoufakis: Greek MP & former finance minister of Greece and author of Another Now: Dispatches from an Alternative Present
  • Gillian Tett: Chairman of the US editorial board and U.S editor-at-large at the Financial Times

Gillian Tett is the pioneering columnist who has spent the last decade documenting the rise of ‘conscious capitalism’, a movement led by businesses that have concluded they can no longer afford to ignore issues like climate change, income inequality and social justice. Yanis Varoufakis is the former Greek finance minister who oversaw the bailout crisis in 2015 and has spent the last decade calling for a kinder vision for the global economy.

On October 4 they come to Intelligence Squared to discuss and debate their visions for a post-COVID economy. While both agree that capitalism needs reform they differ in the solutions they proffer. Tett believes business can play a greater leadership role in confronting existential issues like climate change. Varoufakis will draw from his new book Another Now and present a plan for a post-capitalist future.

Join us as these two leading thinkers discuss and debate their competing visions.
