Join Nation Books author and former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis on Thursday, April 28th at Politics and Prose in Washington, DC. Taking his title from Thucydides, in And The Weak Suffer What They Must? Varoufakis focuses on the precarious state of the European Union as not just a fiscal but a humanitarian crisis in the making. Equating austerity with racism and even misanthropy, he argues that Europe must stop imposing the harshest measures on those suffering the worst recessions, and he outlines the steps needed to avoid another catastrophe like the one Europe experienced in 2009. Currently Varoufakis is a professor of economic theory at the University of Athens and a visiting professor at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin.
