A spirited book. * New Yorker *
His argument has an ambitious sweep. * The Times *
Yanis Varoufakis is a rare economist: skilled at explaining ideas, happy to join in public debates and able to put his discipline in a broader context. * Aditya Chakrabortty, Guardian lead economics writer *
In the most comprehensive guide to the contemporary economic crisis yet written, Yanis Varoufakis traces out the path from post-war US economic supremacy to the current predicament. * Gary Dymski, University of California, Riverside *
Clearly and strongly written, with logical organization building towards simple conclusions, the book is an easy yet rewarding read ... perhaps should become the standard way we think about the nature of our increasingly dysfunctional world economy. * Joel Campbell, International Affairs *
If you want to know how serious the current crisis is, you should read this book. With much eloquence, Yanis Varoufakis argues that the current financial problems are connected to the emerging fault lines of the international monetary system. * Shaun Hargreaves-Heap, University of East Anglia *
Yanis is one of the best, brightest and most innovative economists on the planet. * Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics *
The book is one of those exceedingly rare publications of which one can say they are urgent, timely and absolutely necessary. * Terry Eagleton *
