In the past 6 months, Yanis Varoufakis has been mentioned everywhere. Whether its rocking up at Number 10 in biker boots or posing near the Eiffel tower for Paris Match, the former finance minster of Greece is probably single handedly responsible for illuminating the world about the ongoing Greek tragedy through his unconventional methods of governance and flamboyant stoicism.
Since his sudden yet unsurprising resignation last week, there has been a flurry of rumors regarding whether he was pushed or if he jumped. But the truth of the matter goes a lot deeper and it seems that if anyone has been pushed , it has been the Greek people.
The following 30 min interview is the first interview Yaroufakis has given since stepping down. In it he explains the situation of Greek debt, the manner in which the Troika (the nickname given to the EU/ECB/IMF partnership) is twisting democracy and the dissolvement of Greek sovereignty that we are bearing witness to.
