Varoufakis no es amigo de la democracia

Su nuevo libro -'And The Weak Suffer What They Must?: Europe, Austerity and the Threat to Global Stability'- resume el miedo a la gente de la Euro-izquierda. Es una crítica realizada desde un punto de vista favorable al Brexit del periodista y autor londinense Daniel Ben-Ami .

Yanis Varoufakis is one of those infuriating people who says one thing one minute and contradicts it the next. The former Greek finance minister has savaged the European Union for undermining national sovereignty, but he actively campaigns against Brexit. He has censured the EU for being too centralised, but he calls for more integration. And he has condemned the EU’s second-rate technocracy before then proposing his own technocratic plan to ease its economic problems.

His latest book, And The Weak Suffer What They Must?, is plagued by similar inconsistencies. It presents itself as a history of attempts to move towards a common European currency from the 1970s to the outbreak of the Greek financial crisis in 2010. However, it often seems to be more of an attempt to give intellectual kudos to his new role as a campaigning celebrity. Thankfully, the book provides some insights into the many weaknesses and inconsistencies in his worldview.
