My Friend Yanis, The Greek Minister Of Finance

My Friend Yanis, The Greek Minister Of Finance | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
I first met Yanis Varoufakis when he was a senior lecturer (the 3rd step in the 5-tiered Australian system, equivalent to a Professor in the USA) at Sydney University in the late 1980s, and I was a tutor (the 1st step) at the University of New South Wales. We’ve been friends ever since, and now he has become globally prominent as the Finance Minister of the most troubled and high profile economy on the planet, Greece.

Leftist Syriza Party Victory in Greece Strengthens Anti-Austerity Movement Across Europe | Democracy At Work

Running on an uncompromising anti-austerity platform, Greece’s Syriza party, the Coalition of the Radical Left, won a decisive victory over the conservative New Democracy party in the economically battered nation’s Jan. 25 election. Syriza fell only two seats short of winning an absolute majority in Greece’s 300-seat Parliament, prompting party leader Alexis Tsipras to form an alliance with the small, center right Independent Greeks party to form a governing coalition.

#ReturnToFreedom

#ReturnToFreedom | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

After 2 years of living underground and out of the public eye, the time has finally come for me to get ready for my journey back to freedom. The journey won’t be easy, and will require a lot of work to build widespread support. This is the reason for making this appeal to create teams for the ongoing collaborative effort needed in order to make this happen.

How should policymakers respond to the rise of Uber, AirBNB and others in the "sharing economy"? It's a balance between regulation and strangulation.

Circular economy could create half a million UK jobs

Circular economy could create half a million UK jobs | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

We hear a lot about how we are running out of resources, but for many people it is hard to visualise. Sometimes I’m asked: “Could it really happen?” The simple answer is yes, it could. And a lot sooner than we might think if change isn’t initiated soon. In fact, we have examples of where it has already happened.

‘Hope begins today was their mantra’: the inside story of Syriza’s rise to power — Dark Mountain — Medium

'Hope begins today was their mantra': the inside story of Syriza's rise to power - Dark Mountain - Medium

Syriza’s victory has electrified the left in Europe — even moderate social democrats who have floundered in search of ideas and inspiration since the 2008 crisis. Now there is talk everywhere of “doing a Syriza” — and in Spain, where the leftist party Podemos is scoring 25% in the polls, more than talk.

MODEST PROPOSAL

MODEST PROPOSAL | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The establishment of this blog coincided with our  campaign for a rational resolution of the euro crisis. By we, I mean Stuart Holland and myself. Such a resolution, we felt, was always feasible within the current insititional framework but requires clear vision and political will to implement. Moreover, it can be agreed to by people of different political persuasions since it is founded upon a minimalist, common sense, set of assumptions and policy recommendations.
