Join Nation Books author and former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis on Monday, May 2nd at Austin's Headliners Club.
Varoufakis will discuss his new book And the Weak Suffer What They Must?: Europe's Crisis and America's Economic Future in which he argues that the European Union is a house of cards threatening regional stability and global prosperity. The flawed architecture of the EU's institutions, which struggled to develop an effective or coordinated response to the Eurozone crisis, has never been addressed. Rather than reforming governance or enhancing democracy, Varoufakis contends that Europe’s leaders defended the status quo, while administering a punishing course of austerity on the EU’s weaker members. As a result, he believes, Europe will continue to see rising inequality and extremism, while remaining wholly unprepared for the next crisis. What are the key lessons from the Eurozone crisis? And what can global leaders and citizens do to build a more just, democratic, and sustainable economic system?
5:45pm Cocktails, 6:15pm Seating for Program, Buffet Dinner to follow.
