Γιάννης Βαρουφάκης – Οι λόγοι της οικονομικής κρίσης στην Ευρώπη και τον κόσμο

Στο παρόν βίντεο, ο παγκοσμίως αναγνωρισμένος οικονομολόγος και πρώην μέλος του Ελληνικού Κοινοβούλιου Γιαννης Βαρουφάκης δίνει συνέντευξη στo acTVism Munich. Ως Υπουργός Οικονομικών στο Ελληνικό Κοινοβούλιο (27 Ιανουαρίου 2015 – 6 Ιουλίου 2015) απέσπασε μεγάλη δημοτικότητα. Εγκατέλειψε, ωστόσο, τη θέση του, όταν ήταν πλέον ξεκάθαρο ότι η ελληνική κυβέρνηση αποφάσισε να υλοποιήσει τα μέτρα λιτότητας της Τρόικας – παρά το γεγονός ότι ο ελληνικός λαός στην πλειοψηφία του ύψωσε την φωνή του υπέρ του ΟΧΙ στο σχετικό δημοψήφισμα. Στο μικροσκόπιο της συνέντευξης μπαίνει η ιστορία του παγκόσμιου οικονομικού συστήματος καθώς και οι αλλαγές που υπέστη μετά τον Β’ Παγκόσμιο Πόλεμο, ενώ εξηγείται η διασύνδεση με τη σημερινή οικονομική κρίση που σαρώνει την Ευρώπη και τον κόσμο.
