Greece’s former finance minister, international bestselling author, and an activist working for the revival of democracy in Europe, Yanis Varoufakis pens a series of letters to his young daughter, educating her about the business, politics, and corruption of world economics. In this intimate new book, written to his teenage daughter, Varoufakis uses clear language and vivid examples to explain heady economic theories, the historical origins of inequality, and our rising global instability. Join us as Varoufakis shares from these important and urgent lessons to equip our future generation with the knowledge to question the current failures of our world economic systems and to find a way to more democratic alternatives.
