Yanis Varoufakis: Europe and the fallacy of austerity

Professor of economics Yanis Varoufakis was Minister of Finance of the Hellenic Republic of Greece from January 2015 to the beginning of Juli 2015. He was leading the Greek Syriza government negociations with the EU "troika". With his kind permission, we have added German subtitles to his talk given at the Chicago Council On Global Affairs on April 29, 2016. He gives a very competent but also staggering account of the state of the European Union and in particular its political elites and the role of Wolfgang Schäuble, Federal Minister of Finance of Germany. Professor Varoufakis economic analysis given here is fully compatible with our views on economy and money.
