A conversation with Yanis Varoufakis on post-capitalism and the future of democracy | DiEM25 (2:02:20)
~ DiEM25, 2020-01-07
" On December 15 Yanis Varoufakis, MeRA25 MP and DiEM25 co-founder, spoke at Kadir Has University in Istanbul, Turkey. In his talk, he covered post-capitalism, the Green New Deal and the future of democracy in Europe and beyond. A must watch! "
The auto-generated English closed caption subtitles are absolutely incomprehensibly terrible, yet kinda funny in their total randomness - and they barely improve with English. The introduction (in Dutch? or Turkish?) ends at 3:00 to make way for the conversation in English.
If you're already familiar with Greek Marxist economist Yanis Varoufakis, then there's not much new here for you. (I hoped for more and/or new ideas.) If you aren't, then this is as good an introduction as any. IMO, the Q&A is better and he explains the difference between Universal Basic Income and Universal Basic Dividends.
