Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

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.

'Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original - a potent democratic tool at the perfect time' Naomi Klein

“If you're Left-wing, or even if you have doubts about market economies, you'll love his arguments because they're so easy to understand. If you're on the Right, you'll have a very clear idea of how your cleverest opponents think ... Varoufakis tells all this with exemplary verve ... It's great fun to read ... Varoufakis has started a debate here, and he's done it brilliantly”

A provocative, challenging, yet non-patronising analysis of the global economy: what it is, how it came to be and why it can never be apolitical. By using ancient myths, contemporary culture and family stories, Varoufakis makes the text intimate and accessible -- Nigel Jones Observer Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original - a potent democratic tool at the perfect time -- Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original - a potent democratic tool at the perfect time -- Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough It's great fun to read ...
