Synopsis

Imagine it is 2025. Years earlier, in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, a global uprising has birthed a post-Capitalist world in which democracy, equality and justice are truly served.


In a thought-experiment of startling originality, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis offers a glimpse of this alternative reality. Through the eyes of three characters - a liberal ex-banker, a radical feminist and a maverick technologist - we see what would be needed to forge such a world, one without commercial banks or stock markets, where companies are collectively owned and housing and income are guaranteed, but also at what cost.


How to balance freedom with fairness? How to generate wealth while protecting the planet? How to encourage the best of humanity without unleashing the worst?


As radical in its form as in its vision, Another Now blends Platonic dialogue with speculative fiction to show how our answers to these questions shape our society, while helping us confront the one question that underpins them all: how far are we willing to go in pursuit of our ideals?



Yanis Varoufakis is the author of the bestseller Talking to My Daughter: A Brief History of Capitalism and two previous books, Adults in the Room, a memoir of his time as finance minister of Greece, and an economic history of Europe, And the Weak Suffer What They Must?, both of which were number one bestsellers. Born in Athens in 1961, Yanis Varoufakis was for many years a professor of economics in Britain, Australia and the USA before he entered politics. He is co-founder of the international grassroots movement, DiEM25, and in 2019 won election as one of its representatives in the Greek Parliament. He is currently Professor of Economics at the University of Athens. yanisvaroufakis.eu / @yanisvaroufakis
