GR 2017.05.05 Yanis Varoufakis blows the lid on Europe’s Hidden Agenda

What happened in Greece during the crisis? And what happens when you take on the establishment?

In this extensive interview, former finance minister of Greece Yanis Varoufakis talks about his new book Adults In The Room – My Battle With Europe’s Deep Establishment.

Interview by Katrine Marçal

A couple of Comments:

“A very smart and eloquent man. The Greek bailout was not a bailout of the Greeks but a way to prop up failed banks in Germany and France. Paid for by all the taxpayers in Europe… Banks should be able to fail and go bankrupt. The Greeks have been shafted that much is certain.”

“As an ordinary person, this man is someone I will always hold in esteem mainly because of two points: He shows no signs of self interest and more importantly he admits that he made mistakes. To me that’s the real sign of a person who can be held in trust, a very dangerous thing in the modern world. There’s not enough of people like him in power.”

“His command of English is incredible. I don’t mean just for a non-English native speaker, I mean for anyone. His ability with the language is far better than most well-educated native English speakers.”


Authors note:
To keep in mind Mr. Varoufakis is considered to be a danger to the International Cleptocratic Establishments because he dares to express the truth.
