Inhaltsangabe

In 2008, the universe of Western finance outgrew planet Earth. When Wall Street imploded, a death embrace between insolvent banks and bankrupt states consumed Europe. Half a dozen national economies imploded, and several more came close. But the storm is far from over....

From the aftermath of the Second World War to the present, Varoufakis recounts how the eurozone emerged not as a route to shared prosperity but as a pyramid scheme of debt with countries such as Greece, Ireland, Portugal and Spain at its bottom. Its woeful design ensured that collapse would be inevitable and catastrophic.

But since the hurricane landed, Europe's leaders have chosen a cocktail of more debt and harsh austerity rather than reform, ensuring that the weakest citizens of the weakest nations pay the price for the bankers' mistakes while doing nothing to prevent the next collapse. Instead, the principle of the greatest austerity for those suffering the greatest recessions has led to a resurgence of racist extremism. Once more Europe is a potent threat to global stability.

Drawing on the personal experience of his own negotiations with the eurozone's financiers and offering concrete policies and alternatives, Varoufakis shows how we concocted this mess and how we can get out of it. And the Weak Suffer What They Must? reminds us of our history in order to save European capitalism from itself.

Aufwachen Europa

Dieses Hörbuch vom ehemaligen griechischen Finanzminister ist schwer zu ertragen. Weil es bis ins kleinste Detail erklärt was aus der "europäischen Idee" geworden ist: Eine Diktatur der Finanz- und Politikeliten die keinem demokratischen Prozess mehr unterliegen und ihre Politik auf fanatischen Glauben errichten. Ich schäme mich für Herrn Schäuble und mein Land.

Every european should read this

Yanis Varoufakis engages in a captivating story about the development of the current economic system and power relations in europe from the second world war onwards. He outlines in detail the most detrimental problems the EU is facing today. Would have given 5 stars if it hadn't got a bit repetitive towards the end.
