Overview

When the 2008 global financial crisis hit the European Union, Greece suffered most. Yet rather than designing a rescue plan, EU officials put Greece into an impossible position.

Brought into power as Greece's finance minister by the left-wing Syriza party, economist Yanis Varoufakis sought to negotiate a way out of the country's debt. Yet as Varoufakis recounts in this blistering memoir, European policymakers pushed Greece to adopt austerity measures despite knowing that they would only exacerbate the crisis.

Favorite Quote

"Once caught in this web of power it takes an heroic disposition to turn whistle-blower, especially when one cannot hear oneself think amid the cacophony of so much money-making. And those few who do break ranks end up like shooting stars, quickly forgotten by a distracted world."
