Publisher Description


Yanis Varoufakis, world renowned economist, writes to his daughter to teach her the hazards of capitalism.

‘Why is there so much inequality?’ asked Xenia to her father. Answering her questions in a series of accessible and tender letters, Varoufakis educates her to what economics and capitalism is and why it is so dangerous.

Taking from memories of her childhood and a variety of well-known tales – from Oedipus and Faust to Frankenstein and The Matrix – Varoufakis turns Talking To My Daughter into an enjoyable and engaging read, without ever shying from the harder truths. Greece’s former finance minister explains everything you need to know to understand why economics is the most important drama of our times.

In answering his daughter’s deceptively simple questions, Varoufakis disentangles our troubling world with remarkable clarity and child-like honesty, as well as inspiring us to make it a better one.

Pete's passion for music ,

It explains the madness…this has to be read by EVERYONE

I always judge a book by its cover. The cover tells you so much. It is a book written by a brilliant man that in well under two hundred pages in very simple terms explains why the world is such a mess and then he goes onto show how so much of the mess can be avoided. This book should be given to every child when they start senior school. But it won't be handed out as it is too subversive. It is a threat to the new world order and how they have kept us in economic slavery. Anyway I won’t go on…just buy it read it, give it to a friend and buy another copy and pass this oh so important little book…AND IF WE ALL READ IT THE REVOLUTION WOULD HAPPEN OVER NIGHT!
