Inhaltsangabe

In Adults in the Room, Yanis Varoufakis exposes the shocking reality of how power is wielded behind the scenes at the EU - and argues that only radical reform can save it from collapse.

Yanis Varoufakis became globally famous when was elected finance minister of Greece with a specific mandate to say no to the EU: to reject the forced loans and crushing austerity forced upon his country by the Eurozone.

The negotiations that ensued became one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in economic history. But no one actually knows what went on because Eurogroup discussions are held in secret. In this no-holds-barred account, Varoufakis reveals all: an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship and backstabbing that will shake the economic establishment to its foundations.

The future of the EU now hangs in the balance. As Varoufakis argues, the only way it can survive is if the truth is known, ushering in a new era of radical transparency and accountability in Brussels. Adults in the Room is an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.

Literally Euro-Leaks in book format

Very insightful commentary by someone who was inside something as opaque as the eurogroup.
I don't know how he was able to keep track of the many conversations he had with VIPs like Lagarde or Schäuble (diary perhaps) but it was very enlightening to me.
Best audiobook I've listened to so far.
Also recommend the "talking to my daughter about capitalism" but not as an audiobook. It's way shorter then this one.

Love you Yanis<3

Do you want to know it?

It hurts to see so called adults playing kindergarten. Kudos to Yanis Varoufakis. By the way; if you have schemers in your team, remove them or remove yourself.

Politik als Krimi

Hat Ihnen Leighton Pugh an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Ich persönlich hätte es lieber, Yanis hätte es selber gesprochen, aber dieser Sprecher ist auch sehr gut.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

Ja.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Sollte jeder mal gelesen haben und bei dem nächsten Urnengang berücksichtigen. Politik (so traurig wie sie ist) ehrlich und spannend aufbereitet.
