Foyles Notes

A short but accessible book by the influential Greek economist Yanis Varoufakis. In answering a simple question from his daughter, Varoufakis gives readers a concise summary of the current economic climate that has a grip on all world markets.

An intimate drama of a non-fiction title that is a must for anyone attempting to understand our modern world.

Steven, Birmingham

Synopsis

Yanis Varoufakis, the bestselling author of Adults in the Room, uses personal stories and famous myths to explain what economics is and why it has the power to change our world. Why is there so much inequality? In this intimate and accessible book, world famous economist Yanis Varoufakis sets out to answer his daughter Xenia's deceptively simple question. Drawing on memories of her childhood and a variety of well-known tales - from Oedipus and Faust to Frankenstein and The Matrix -- Talking To My Daughter About the Economy explains everything you need to know in order to understand why economics is the most important drama of our times. It is a book that helps to make sense of a troubling world while inspiring us to make it a better one.
