Description

Imagine a world with no banks. No stock market. No tech giants. No billionaires.

Imagine if Occupy and Extinction Rebellion actually won.

In Another Now world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis shows us what such a world would look like. Far from being a fantasy, he describes how it could have come about – and might yet. But would we really want it?

Varoufakis’s boundary-breaking new book confounds expectations of what the good society would look like and reveals the uncomfortable truth about our desire for a better world…

‘One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope’ Slavoj Zizek

Publisher Review

The most interesting man in the world * Business Insider * One of my few heroes -- Slavoj Zizek Utterly accessibly, deeply humane and startlingly original -- Naomi Klein (on Talking to My Daughter) An important, terrifying must-read ... Varoufakis has the greatest political virtues of all: courage and honesty * The Times (on Adults in the Room) * Superbly written ... he was - and is - right -- Martin Wolf (on Adults in the Room) One of the most accurate and detailed descriptions of modern power ever written -- Paul Mason (on Adults in the Room) The reason Varoufakis seems to have captured the imaginations of so many is that his words about the European crisis speak universal truths about democracy, capitalism and social policy * Guardian *
