Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece and celebrated ‘rock star of Europe’s anti-austerity uprising’, will be joining us to sign copies of his new book And the Weak Suffer What They Must?
In this dramatic narrative of Europe’s economic rise and spectacular fall Varoufakis recounts how the eurozone emerged in the wake of the financial crisis not as route to shared prosperity but as a pyramid scheme of debt with countries such as Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain at its bottom. His narrative details exactly how Europe’s leaders have chosen a cocktail of more debt and harsh austerity rather than reform, ensuring that the weakest citizens of the weakest nations pay the price for the bankers’ mistakes, while doing nothing to prevent the next collapse. Drawing on personal experience from his own negotiations with the eurozone’s financiers and offering concrete policies and alternatives, Varoufakis shows how we concocted this mess and how we can get out of it. And The Weak Suffer What They Must? reminds us of our history in order to save European capitalism from itself.
