Description - And the Weak Suffer What They Must? by Yanis Varoufakis
The world-renowned economist and former Greek finance minister presents a devastating critique of how Europe has mishandled the Eurozone crisis, offering concrete reforms for how we can save European capitalism and democracy from itself
**THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER**
The most recognisable economist on the planet, Yanis Varoufakis, puts forth his case to reform an EU that currently fails it weakest citizens.
In this startling account of Europe's economic rise and catastrophic fall, Varoufakis pinpoints the flaws in the European Union's design - a design thought up after the Second World War, and one responsible for Europe's fragmentation and resurgence of racist extremism.
When the financial crisis struck in 2008, the political elite's response ensured it would be the weakest citizens of the weakest nations that paid the price for the bankers' mistakes. Drawing on his personal experience of negotiations with the eurozone's financiers, and offering concrete policies to reform Europe, the former finance minister of Greece shows how we concocted this mess and points our way out of it.
And The Weak Suffer What They Must? highlights our history to tell us what we must do to save European capitalism and democracy from the abyss. With the future of Europe under intense scrutiny after Brexit, this is the must-read book to explain Europe's structural flaws and how to fix them.
