At home with the Financial Times – by Bruce Clark, 11 APR 2018

Yanis Varoufakis is full of teasing paradoxes. As a radical economics guru, he expounds on the state of the world with a mixture of burning grievance and brimming, almost imperious, self-confidence. Aged 57, his personal baggage includes a keen sense of the wrongs of recent Greek history, which overshadowed his parents’ lives, and the glories […]

Why we founded new political party MeRA25 to challenge austerity in Greece – The New Statesman, 5 APR 2018

Στο κατάμεστο Θέατρο Ιλίσια, μετά από μια ολόκληρη μέρα θεματικών συζητήσεων και μηνυμάτων από όλη την Ευρώπη, ανέβηκε στην σκηνή ο Ψαραντώνης για να δώσει με την λύρα του το μέγα μήνυμα: Ο φόβος δεν θα περάσει! Παίρνοντας την σκυτάλη, ξεκίνησα την κεντρική ομιλία της βραδιάς, απαντώντας: Κάποτε που είχες πει Ψαραντώνη ότι, στις δύσκολες […]

DiEM25 English Finance Minister FinMin2015 Greece Greek Crisis MeRA25

“Greece was strangled by the creditors in 2015. We stand with Yanis Varoufakis and with the truth.” Professors Jeff Sachs (Columbia) and James K. Galbraith (Texas)

Thomas Wieser’s claim that Yanis Varoufakis and the Greek government of 2015 cost their economy 200 billion euros is ludicrous. As Wieser knows – because he was one of the architects of the policy – the Greek economy in 2015 was strangled by its creditors. The creditors inflicted severe damage from the first day: by […]
