Talking to my daughter about economy — by Yanis Varoufakis (Introduction and Chapter-1)

Introduction

  1. He had a delicious contradiction about his own profession: more scientific our models of the economy become, the less relation they bear to the real, existing economy out there.
  2. He has a conviction that the economy is too important to leave it to the economists. Quote: “As a teacher of economics, I have always believed that if you are not able to explain the economy in a language young people can understand, then, quite simply, you are clueless yourself.
  3. He was never able to spend much time with his daughter Xenia throughout her life, she studying in Australia and him being in Greece. When she had once asked during her mid-teen “Why so much inequality, Dad? Is humanity that stupid?”, his answer did not convince her and himself. He considered writing this book as a chance to discuss things with his daughter that scarcity of time never allowed.

Why so much inequality?

  1. Read this book in English — Amazon or 1lib.in has an e-book
  2. I read the book in Tamil — பொருளாதாரம் பற்றி என் மகளுக்கு அளித்த விளக்கம் — bought it from Panuval
  3. Podcast — Yanis’ speech at Los Angeles Public library
