Yanis Varoufakis with Shami Chakrabarti (2018 Event)

Former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has written several influential books and has co-founded ‘DiEM25’, a pan-European progressive movement which will be competing in next year’s European parliament elections. Adults in the Room was described as ‘one of the greatest political memoirs of all time’, while Talking to My Daughter About the Economy is a lightning-quick account of how capitalism works and how it fails. In this event recorded live at the 2018 Edinburgh International Book Festival, he discusses his ideas on democracy, liberty, internationalism and radical Europeanism with Shami Chakrabarti, Labour peer and former director of Liberty.
