Another Now with Yanis Varoufakis

Episode Summary

With special guest, Yanis Varoufakis, world-famous economist and author of the science fiction novel "Another Now" (Penguin), we travel not into the future, but into a parallel dimension.

Episode Notes

The "other now" described by Varoufakis could exist somewhere in a fissure of the time-space continuum. In this dimension, capitalism (as we know it) is dead, but a liberal and democratic society is thriving.

Yanis Varoufakis is an economist, politician and a former Minister of Finance of Greece, member of the Greek Parliament, co-founder of the European Transnational Party "DiEM25", and science fiction writer.

This episode is hosted by Giuseppe Porcaro, and co-hosted with Alberto Cottica, from the Science Fiction Economics Lab and sees the participation of Teresa O’Connell, acting chief editor at Are We Europe, and Samuel Doveri Vesterbye, director of the European Neighborhood Council.
