The Economist’s Society is pleased to announce Yanis Varoufakis, ex-Greek Minister of Finance, to speak on the topic of ‘Brexit, Greece and DiEM 25’.
A prominent economist and political activist, Varoufakis played an important role in negotiations to extend Greece’s loan agreement in 2015. In February 2016, Varoufakis launched DiEM25, which looks to revive democracy in the European Union in order to prevent its disintegration. DiEM25 has over 33000 members in more than 131 countries.
Varoufakis is also an expert on the European debt crisis, the world’s financial imbalance and game theory. He co-published ‘A Modest Proposal’ which provided economic policies aimed at dealing with and overcoming the Euro crisis.
This event will likely be extremely busy, so please arrive in good time as places will be allocated on a first come first serve basis!
