‘Europe’s problem is its failed economic system, not migration’ – Yanis Varoufakis | DiEM25


My next guest is launching his own global
counter movement, while also running to become a member of the European
Parliament, Yanis Varoufakis is the former Greek Finance Minister, who resigned
in 2015 amid contentious debt negotiations at the time, with the EU, and he’s joining
me now from Athens. Yanis Varoufakis, welcome to the programme. Thank you Christiane, happy to be on it. So yo know, I brought up 2015 and it seemed
that you couldn’t go a day without hearing about Grexit and a potential Greek default
and chaos in your land and across Europe and reverberating all over the world, and
here we are nearly 4 years later, Brexit is in chaos but it’s happening,
these populist and extreme waves of nationalism that you were talking about
back then seem to be the order of the day way beyond Greece. I mean you were pretty
prescient back then… Well, Christiane, in 2008 we, our generation,
experienced our version of 1929, it began in Wall Street, just like in 1929, and very
soon the world ceased to make sense in terms of what was conventional wisdom
up until very recently. We, well our regimes our liberal establishment, to put it this
way, just like the Weimar republic in the 1920s, pretended that business could
continue as usual, of course the major fault lines in finance made it essential,
in order to pretend that business could continue as usual, to shift pain, loss,
debt, onto the shoulders of the weakest of citizens, especially in the EU, but also
in the US, and very soon you had discontent and that discontent begot political monsters
both in Europe and in the US. So, political monsters, some, you know,
people would potentially describe the extreme right and extreme left as being
the sort of political monsters if you like at least they are gobbling up any sense
of a centrist future, any sense that you can even find a majority for anything and
a consensus to make policy. So you have described the threat from this nationalism
and this populism, and you are launching DiEM25 which you hope to be a progressive
International, a progressive wave, to counter this mostly extreme-right
nationalism. Can you explain how you plan to do that and what is DiEM25? Well DiEM25 is an acronym for the
Democracy in Europe Movement, but we are also using the exaltation
‘Carpe Diem’, seize the day, because we need to seize the day, as you can see in Europe, we have a Domino effect,
takeovers of our politics by extremists of the right, xenophobes, who are exploiting
the discontent and the anger, in order to turn against, one proud nation against
another, turn Italians against the Roma, against migrants and so on… so we need
to seize the day. But allow me just to put it very simply: what we are trying
to do is to take one brilliant idea, from Franklin Roosevelt’s administration 1933,
from the New Deal – that simple idea is to utilise, to find smart ways of utilising
existing idle cash, idle money, savings that are not being invested into productive
useful things, for humanity, into the good quality jobs that can uniquely quell the
discontent caused by the fact that most people can see that their children are not
going to have as good a life as they did and press this idle cash into service, in
order for green transition, green technologies, green energy, green
transport systems. That basic idea which in a sense, allowed the US in 1933
onwards to avoid the decline of Europe, the degeneration of Europe, at the same
time, into a kind of fascist equilibrium… That is an idea that we want to salvage
from that period, to bring it to Europe and indeed to internationalise it if we can,
so as to counter at an internationalist level both the failures of the globalisation,
Davos, if you want, establishment, that caused the crisis in 2008, and the
political representation of the extremists who are now taking over one country after
the other. OK, so let’s take one country after the
other, let’s start with France where we’ve seen the most violent manifestation of this
discontent and you have what many in the liberal democratic, sort of moderate, kind
of centre, saw as a beacon of hope: the election of president Macron, who defeated
precisely the voice of nationalism and extremism, Marine Le Pen on the right and
Mélenchon on the left, and now we’ve had these massive and violent protests and we
simply don’t know, even whether the president’s backsliding is going to
placate them… What is it… First of all do you agree with this demonstration of
discontent, and what will it take, because they want something that sounds very
counter positional: they want more social services, more help from the state and
less taxes; how does this progressive wave that you envision work, in the face of
these demands? Well I think it is important to answer
that question using what president Macron has himself said, not very recently, but
before he was… before he moved to the Élysée, when he was still a candidate, I
remember Emmanuel Macron very vividly saying that there have to be reforms in
France, but at the very same time, unless we have a federalist reform of the Eurozone,
of the way the EU is conducting its business, unless there is a common budget,
a federal treasury of sorts in Europe, unless we have a proper banking union, so
that we end this pretence that we can have national banking systems without treasuries
that can actually do that which the US Treasury is doing and salvaging them, he
himself, President Macron, predicted that without these moves towards federalism,
toward some kind of serious Eurozone reform the centre cannot hold and the EU would be
dismantled, that was Emmanuel Macron. He gets elected and he puts forward an
agenda for Eurozone reforms, which was very moderate and quite sensible, but the
way in which he tried to carry out was a 2-phase negotiation with Berlin: phase 1
he would germanise France, especially the labour market and the national budget, and
then go to Mrs. Merkel and say ‘ok, now I’ve germanised France, let’s have a
federal Eurozone’. That failed, it was a colossal miscalculation on his part,
because he germanised France, he introduced austerity to the national
budget, he made it easier for employers to fire workers, he increased taxes for
the poor and reduced them for the rich and then, when he put forward the proposals
for reforming the Eurozone, which for him were absolutely essential, necessary
prerequisites, Mrs. Merkel said Nein and very soon after that she lost power. So
the explanation lies in the narrative of Mr. Macron himself: the centre is not
holding, because we are not consolidating the EU economy the way that even
Mr. Macron, who is much more moderate than I am in his politics, had specified
as absolutely necessary for his country. OK, so let me put the little devil’s
advocate then to you, because some economists do believe that some of the
reforms he did put forward have actually produced results, the labour reforms and
others, and the question here is that some also saw not a galloping French economy,
but a move towards the French economy doing a little bit better and predictions
that it would continue to do better if the reforms continue. The same in Germany, a
still galloping economy, in Britain the economy doing really really well, in the
US the economy is doing actually really well and yet this malaise, and yet this
rebellion against the governments whose economies are doing well for them; so if
this is the result when the economies are going well, what happens when they go
really badly, if that seems to be… if you predict that to be potentially the case
down the line? Well I think the key to understanding what’s
going on and answering your question, is to look at these economies and manage to
discern the fact that they are not uniform. You talked about Germany: Germany is
indeed swimming in cash, it is swimming in surpluses, everybody seems to be having
surpluses; the federal government is in surplus, there is a majestic, gigantic
trade surplus that Donald Trump is targeting, there are corporations that are saving money
and there are households that have savings and yet, Christiane, and yet, and this is
the great paradox, which I think answers your question, half of the
German population are far worse off today than they were 15 years ago. Similarly,
you spoke about France and the reforms: yes it is true that Macron made business
easier to conduct in France, but at the same time he introduced austerity, which
was effectively exported from countries like Greece, into France, and that created
whole regions in France that resemble Greece, in other words areas of
a great depression, and it is in those areas that the movement of the gilets jaunes,
the yellow vests emerged, before descending onto the streets of Paris. You mentioned
the UK: well why did Brexit succeed? It did not succeed because of some deep
antipathy toward the EU, it succeeded because a very large percentage of the
population were being treated, or felt like they were being treated, like cattle
that had lost their market value, they felt discarded, they felt completely
disenfranchised from a London based economy which was, as you said, expanding very
rapidly, while large sections of the population and of the country were being
left or held behind. This is the issue here. Divisions within our countries and between
our countries growing, while statistics at the macro level seeming to be prospering,
so you have effectively national statistics that are prospering, and large proportions
of the population that are being discarded. OK, so now let me put this notion of
division and nationalism and populism to you in this context: Steve Bannon,
president Trump’s election campaign genius, whizz, who helped him win the election,
has, as you know, been in Europe, trying to round up all these extreme right
nationalist parties and elements into what he called ‘the movement’, to contest
most particularly the upcoming European elections in May of next year. Ehm, this is
what he says about his movement: Eh, that is pretty frank and rather chilling
talk actually, from a guy who has a proven track record of getting a president elected
with some of those views. Are you concerned or do you see your movement as going up
directly against his movement? Listening to Steve Bannon sends a shiver
down my spine, because, while nobody can accuse me of being uncritical towards
Brussels and the EU, this disintegrationalist, nationalist
narrative, is what is going to lead to a great deal of pain being inflicted upon
a majority of people in a majority of countries in Europe. This coalescence of
nationalists is working toward disintegrating the EU in a way that will
only bring into power strongmen like Mr. Salvini in Italy, like Mr. Kurz in
Austria, like Mrs. Le Pen in France, the result being a dystopia, the result being
a genuine post-modern version of the 1930s and yes, DiEM25, our Democracy in Europe
Movement, while being very critical of the European establishment, we are going to
fight Mr. Steve Bannon in every realm, with a pan-European humanist narrative, one
which seeks to bring together the peoples of Europe, not to divide them and to
disintegrate them. So I wonder whether you think that you
will succeed, whether you are optimistic about the challenge you have at hand, and
particularly I want to ask you about one of the biggest rallying calls and cries to
these nationalists is the issue of immigration, and you know… the Hungarian
foreign minister talked to me about this, they just do not want practically anybody
except for white Christians to come in, and you know the UN migration charter
pretty much failed in Marrakesh, with all the relevant countries sort of pulling
out and refusing to sign on, and the US not even sitting at the table. Listen to
what the Hungarian foreign minister said about this central issue to me, when we
spoke in September. My question is: what is the legal or moral
ground for anyone to cross, to violate the border between two peaceful countries?
These people came through Serbia, Croatia Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, all
peaceful and safe countries, so it’s not a fundamental human right that you wake up
in the morning, you pick a country where you would like to live in, like Germany, or
Sweden, and in order to get there you violate series of borders. This is not
the way it should work out. So, I mean, there is a lot to question
there, but nonetheless you get his point. What does your movement seek to do to
address the fear and loathing around migration today? Well isn’t it interesting… you will recall
that Hungary was a communist country and lots of Hungarian democrats fled the
country and sought refuge by crossing borders, they sought refuge, in Europe,
and indeed when the regime collapsed, we opened up our borders to Hungarians, to
the Czechs, to the Slovaks and so on. That is the fundamental basis of a democratic
Europe, that we feel stronger when we bring border fences down, not when we
erect them. Europe does not have a problem with migration, Europe has a problem with
austerity, with a failed economy, with a failed economic system and let me remind
you, something else which I think is of interest, Hungary has no refugees, Hungary
has very few migrants! In my country, which is already suffering a … monumental
economic collapse, we have tens and hundreds of thousands of refugees and
migrants, you do not have an anti-immigration feeling in this country.
But you asked me whether I’m optimistic: Christiane, I do believe very strongly
that when it comes to politics, when it comes to fighting for democratic rights
and for humanism, we don’t have the right to issue predictions, we have the moral
right to do what is right, and then simply to expect that hope is going to be the
fuel that drives the success in the end. We will be watching!
Yanis Varoufakis, thank you so much for joining us from Athens.

  1. She keeps saying the economies are doing well yet we see so many homeless food banks evictions WTF is she talking about is she a fkn idiot or just spouting bullshit to us

  2. Many years ago I was travelling in Germany and many Germans I talked to were telling me that Germany is a rich country with poor citizens and Greece is the exact opposite a poor country with rich citizens and that this should change.Well it seems to me that this is what happened.

  3. Has the presenter been drinking? she said the US and UK economy is "doing really really well!"
    She presumably forgot to ask… for whom?

    In the US wages for the bottom 70% have been pretty stagnant for the last 40 years.

    In the UK wages have actually fallen in real terms for most people.

    Capitalism isn't working, we are. Longer and harder for less.

  4. Under natural circumstances. You are a human being, and you have a right to go to anywhere on this earth and make that your home.

    We live under unnatural circumstances. We have allowed ourselves over thousands of years to be convinced of fictions and fight for those fictions. Nations, are a belief, not a reality. If you remove the water from the earth, all are standing on the same rock.

    One day, perhaps we will evolve enough to return to our natural state, of one people on one world. though looking at climate change it is more likely capitalism incentivising nations to compete against each other will wipe out most life on the surface of the earth, within the life of someone born today, no matter how many solar panels we throw at the problem.

  5. Uses people’s money against them like general election promises and curb nationalism and stay with the current liberal policies that have failed

  6. This is hilarious. Christiane Amanpour has a net wealth of $12.5 million dollars. Of course everything is great looking out her window. Do you think she ever breaks bread with pensioners living on $900 a month? She's just another symptom of the problem. Rich out of touch people analysing our problems. Go to pasture you cow.

  7. The banks made it, the banks will destroy it again.
    The power is being transferred to Asia, money is on the move and traditionally, that means a huge war is coming.
    Don't fight each other, take out the Banksters, the tax collectors, the monarchies, the corporations and their politicians that don't represent the people.

  8. Varoufakis promotes open borders and no limits on illegal immigration toEurope which will replace the Europeans with third World immigrants ,who will subjugate and destroy Europe in less than a decade!

  9. Man, I so want to see an hour or two with Yanis Varoufakis, Robert Reich, Mark Blyth, and Richard Wolff on the same stage at once. That would be INTERESTING.

  10. Lol paris : violent blind hatred but ss and neo nazi's in ukraine putsch: lovely peacefull non violent artists, what An liar

  11. When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorises it and a moral code that glorifies it.
    Frederic Bastiat
    The rebellion is just beginning…

  12. Bald filth we know that you working for the UK.

    We also know that this view 0:23 is from your home rich pseydo-socialist and con artist scumbag.

  13. This guy thinks that Europe collectively issuing 500 Billion bond debt annually is the solution. He's a joke. He ruined my country, Greece already. Don't vote for his party.

  14. Any capitalist country has the European virus. One should really beat down the ultra right. Start with banning intrigants like Bannon. Bannon has no role in Europe. Start taxing the big corporations stop nationalisations of services or better take them back. Than the EU has a great future, but let the fascist untouched and we will see war again. So yes lock them up, the Bannon's of this world.

  15. It has been known for millenniums that if compounded public and government debt is not cancelled out every fifty years the transfer of wealth will favour only the minority of super-rich individuals at the end of its cycle. Ancient Rome collapsed because of compounding linear debt burdening the empire. Currently, we continue with the Roman legacy and as a result, are witnessing how effective compounded linear debt is at removing the wealth from the Western European and American people. The longer linear debt exists the more it compounds fictitious added values. Great news for the Banker's, terrible outcome for Joe Public. How is it possible that there are people living in poverty in America? Easy, make sure the countries GDP is overwhelmed by compounding commercial and government debt that is linear by design.

  16. Freeze frame the current political and financial reel of injustice. Rewind and audit every frame, but be careful it might take you back centuries ago. Tell us what you found. Not what you think. Lo and behold. Scrap all the political jargon produced not by the citizens (to which true politics belongs) and call out Injustice for what it is. Lies which permeate all aspects of our social upbringing for what they are. Illogical institutional foundations producing nothing but anomalies. Enlighten us Mr Varoufakis and we are very well capable by nature itself to find our way. To quote Kazantzakis. People are not saved. People save. it is really a case for psychological study how you, people of a so called high profile, haven't realised yet that it's game over. People armed with knowledge, everywhere, are really very angry. And this time, the revolution will truly be by the people for the people. The warning signs are everywhere. Existentially, what has been designed to happen, will happen. It is time to take a stance. You are either with us or against us.

  17. The extreme Left and Right are both an issue, however they exist as they do because of the failure of the Globalists, who are robbing the poorer people in order to line their pockets. If you think of the Political spectrum as an indication of social health, both extremes display illness within society. The Globalists are ignoring this issue, because they think that destroying democracy is the answer.

  18. The Left have destroyed their credibility with the people because they no longer look after the poor, since aligning with the Globalists as well as Identity Politics.

  19. He lost me at: "consolidating the EU's economy." How is centralizing power going to help us when the same bankster debt enslavers are still in power?

  20. EUROZONE AUSTERITY WILL TRIGGER WORLD WIDE DEPRESSION —the euro zone was deliberately built to fail by the vultures who pluck the bones as they did to greece

  21. Watch it Yanis. You're talking to Neo-lib centrist Armanpour here. Her ivory tower life allows her to completely forget the fact that the UK has 300,000 In homelessness, large numbers of working people using food banks and stagnant wages since 2008.

  22. So to understand.. I m 32, i live in province and I m working 5 days per week, 10 hours per day, for 30e per day (that's 150e per week) and I have one whole stamp per week (that means 4 stamps per month).. When it will come to elections, i will have to choose who I want to be my president… the one I think (he) can solve "my" problems IN (real time) LIVING.. and among all the candidates theres Yanis with one N … who thinks (right) that Europe's problem is its failed economic system … and the plan of saving me/us in Greece comes with the color "GREEN"… probably i would say #GreenMyAss, but i m getting late at my (dream)work of the mythical 30e wage.. so excuse me but i have to go…i have to Carpe Diem !!!!!

  23. Look at how this interviewer equates the "extreme right" with the "extreme left", as though they stand for similar things. Melenchon is NOT anything like Le Pen!! And her claim that the economies of the UK, France , U.S. and Germany are doing "very well"? Yeah, they're doing great for about the top 10% of the population! She's either woefully ignorant or a status quo hack.

  24. Please don’t compare the far left to the far right. First of all, the far left in America consists of a few anarchists throwing bricks at windows in marches-Antifa. The far right is MUCH more populous, and rational ppl don’t need to argue about whether the intentions of the right or left are healthier or more decent. Really, really tired of this false equivalency. I would hope you avoid the trap of neutrality over fact, Ms. Amanpour. I am a big fan of your work.

  25. The economy in America is only going well for the top ten percent, who own most of the stocks(and everything else). The rest of us are struggling very hard. The low unemployment rate is an illusion: more people did get jobs, but most are crappy service jobs near minimum wage($7.25 an hour-for you non-Americans, yup, that’s for real). Unemployment statistics don’t count underemployment or people who have given up, so they’re essentially meaningless. Social security disability is $750 per month. Even for people who “deserve” it-quad and paraplegics, intellectually disabled-it’s all the same. Progressives have the answer, but I think we will have to give up billionaires in America. When my child doesn’t have enough to eat, that makes billionaires an obscenity.

  26. Amanpour, "The Angel of Death" , how they call her in 3rd World hellholes, where she used to report from, gory stories from war zones… etc.

    Complacent, resigned, "moderates" are a bigger enemy than fascists

    They DON'T Maintain status quo, they propagate and maintain any status commanded to them from above

    They're your communist party aparatchicks

    Whores of the system

  27. True problem of Europe, and ESPECIALLY of Greece, are a bunch of hms uss YANISARIES LIKE YE…that isnt nuff they boost and PREMADE EM,isnt nuff they turn EVERYTHING into rock bottom shit so EM to be afloat…they come and 110% support all the SICKNESS westminster n washington spill to the LETTER…THIS, "sir" baroufakis.
    I tell you this AGAIN…YOU and your alikes, ARE THE BEST PROMOTION for UNITY IN EU! THE VERY BEST! Your "bosses" "soros" should think of removing you from "Action", you bring the OPPOSITE RESULT, of wot they want! ALL! they say nao…"LISTEN the cas from westminster and their yanisaries like baroufakis…and you ll end up like Greece"!

  28. Economy going really well????Only if you believe the statistics. Food stamps in the US and Food banks in the UK would seem to contradict that! He is right we need a new deal, serious input for job creation, but America, and all the EU countries never had the debt they have now. The monetary system has to change. But that will only be possible after a big war (as it was the last time WW2)

  29. He wants to use failed FDR plans; yes, he wants to centralizes control where he and the other intellectual can play god. The 1930's depression lasted a decade because of FDR; seems like that part of history is forgotten.

  30. How is that Greek economy going? This guy wants to bring the Greek way to the rest of Europe and hates the Germans because they actual understand economics and the requirement of it.

  31. the migration problem DID NOT create the financial problem, Yanis, brilliant and as usual is correct, HOWEVER it is endless gasoline on a raging our of control fire.

  32. Is she stupid??? It's possible. She may be a newscaster who's head is swimming in the manipulation of mainstream media. Perhaps she's naive and one of us. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt. However, most "news"casters consciously choose to be in the pocket of their corporate donors who source their big paychecks and lies.

  33. Varoufakis's DIEM idea, while laudable in its intention to vitiate the rise of a new post modern fascism in Europe, falis to fully appreciate the cause of the rise of such extreme Nationalist movements, that cause being best expressed by the Marxian observation- "behind every rising Fascism, is a failed revolutionary movement"

  34. Yanis is a fucking traitor asshole NWO promoting Moron.. Take a look at Greece.. He was the Financial dude for Them and allowed the Central Banks and the EU to fuck up all of Europe.. More progressive BS is not the solution.. Bald headed asshole is a traitor to his ancestors…Merkel didn't Germanize France they Africanized and Islamified France… Yanis is a deceiver ! I hope he dies tomorrow The Migrants have ruined his Country and now he wants it to ruin every-one else;s Country so he doesn't feel like the only failure on the planet

  35. Mate we already agree with you. My question is why have you skipped or ignored the European progressive mouvements that are already unifying and campaigning underneath the same group :”Now the People” for 2019 EU elections. I will personally vote for those in my country representing the EU progressive mouvement called: Now the People. Hopefully this mouvement can extend to other EU nations and then worldwide.

  36. I like some of your ideas … but to say that Macron Germanised France is exaggerating how deep his reforms actually were …

  37. "Europe's problem is its failed economic system, not migration".. Don't be stupid its both, this guy's blind as a fruit bat. I am so glad this socialist full of his brainless "xenophobe" platitudes will be absorbed into the oblivion of the EU parliament, he is no Nigel the Great Farage, thats for sure.

  38. "In the face of divisive nationalist movements, MEP Candidate and DiEM25 co-founder Yanis Varoufakis wants the world's progressives to fight for democratic rights." How do socialists/communists fight for democratic rights? "HOPE" in what? stupid.. you are a Jesus-less communist.

  39. Europe's problem is the failure of the government to charge all bankers (except non-profit bankers) for acts of Treason and Sedition for issuing fraudulent loans and charging interest and bankrupting the nation for debts which never existed. The bankers are financial terrorists and deny the people sovereignty. Bankes have been responsible for misery suffered by mankind. All Wars are Bankers Wars. The government has allowed the bankers to commit crimes of epic proportion against all the people are also guilty of High Treason and Sedition.

    The following are the main factors that destroy the economy, the nation, bankrupts all the people, are the cause of wars, injustice and all the misery suffered by mankind.  Since the bankers are the architects of the crime based economy they and their puppet government are the only beneficiaries of the crime based economy.

    All private banks with the exception of non-profit banks have issued loans which are not loans and charging interest.  And this is the root cause of all misery suffered by mankind in all nations of the world.

                       

    1) A criminal government allow the bankers to commit the following crimes of epic proportions;

    2) bankers to issue fraudulent loans and interest charges which bankrupts everybody.

    3) confiscatory taxation, which is paid to the bankers as interest for not lending any amount is the result of bankers issuing loans.

    4) the criminal bankers finance all political parties with money they rob the people. when the political parties are elected the government doesn't take any action against the bankers.

    5) The bankers control the corrupt the education system, media,  to protect their crimes with the help of the corrupt justice system, corrupt government.

    6) speculation, stock market trading in derivatives and other criminal financial instruments  makes the bankers and their friends super wealthy and destroys the economy

    7) laws prohibiting cocaine, marijuana and other prohibited substances destroyed the economy and causes chaos which is the desired effect of the criminal bankers

    8)  fails to implement an efficient transit system and compels people to use Automobiles

    The charging of Interest on fake loans is the primary cause of price increase, debt default, shortage of money for the people, scientifically sustained economic crisis, high rate of poverty, high crime rate and bankruptcies.  Banks have never been in the lending business this is the most hidden fact of history.

    People organize, place ads to inform the people that your group desired to establish a Common Law Court of Justice made up of anyone who is interested. Initiate a referendum.  You need at least 25 to act as the Grand Jury. they should be chosen by random selection like a lottery, pick the names.

    Advertise the event. Present formal charges to the Grand Jury and they decide to either issue arrest warrants for all Members of the Legislation and President or issue an order for them to attend and hear the charges.  You need a web page and ask the citizens to vote online; ask: Are the Members of Parliament guilty of High Treason or not. I have an ocean of evidence to prove it should anyone need my help and testimony please contact me.

    Preferably is better to issue an order for all Members of Parliament and President to attend the Court and if they show up then read the charges against them and the Grand Jury decides to issue arrest warrants and jail them on the grounds of High Treason and Sedition. If they don’t show up then the Grand Jury must issue an arrest warrants for all Members of the Legislation and the President. Also, issue an order to confiscate all their private property.  If convicted the Grand Jury must order the police to arrest the government officials if the Police refuses then issue an arrest warrant to the police. Nobody is above the law. So don't just make lots of noise and demonstrate. Don't forget you the people are the government.

    Voici les principaux facteurs qui détruisent l'économie, la nation, faillis tout le peuple, sont la cause des guerres, de l'injustice et toute la misère subie par l'humanité. Étant donné que les banquiers sont les architectes de l'économie fondée sur la criminalité et ils leur gouvernement fantoche sont les seuls bénéficiaires du crime économie fondée. Toutes les banques privées, à l'exception des banques sans but lucratif ont émis des prêts qui ne sont pas prêts et les intérêts de charge. Et cela est la cause de toute la misère subie par les hommes dans toutes les nations du monde.

    1) Le gouvernement criminel permettre aux banques de commettre des crimes suivants des proportions épiques;

    2) les banques d'émettre des prêts frauduleux et les frais d'intérêt qui faillis tout le monde.

    3) la fiscalité confiscatoire, qui est versée aux banquiers que les intérêts pour ne pas prêter toute somme est le résultat des banquiers prêts d'émission.

    4) les banquiers criminels financent tous les partis politiques avec de l'argent qu'ils volent le peuple. lorsque les partis politiques sont élus, le gouvernement ne prend aucune mesure contre les banquiers.

    5) Les banquiers contrôlent la corruption du système d'éducation, les médias, pour protéger leurs crimes avec l'aide du système de justice corrompu, le gouvernement corrompu.

    6) la spéculation, le commerce sur le marché boursier en dérivés et autres instruments financiers criminels rend les banquiers et leurs amis super riches et détruit l'économie

    7) des lois interdisant la cocaïne, la marijuana et d'autres substances interdites ont détruit l'économie et provoque le chaos qui est l'effet recherché des banquiers criminels

    8) ne réussit pas à mettre en place un système de transport en commun efficace et oblige les gens à utiliser Voitures La charge d'intérêts sur les prêts faux est la principale cause d'augmentation des prix, défaut de la dette, le manque d'argent pour le peuple, scientifiquement crise économique soutenue, le taux élevé de pauvreté, taux de criminalité élevé et faillites. Les banques ont jamais été dans l'entreprise de prêt est le fait le plus caché de l'histoire.

    Les gens organisent, placer des annonces pour informer les gens que votre groupe souhaite établir une Cour de droit commun de justice composée de toute personne intéressée. Lancer un référendum. Vous avez besoin d'au moins 25 pour agir comme le Grand Jury. ils devraient être choisis par tirage au sort comme une loterie, choisir les noms. Annoncez l'événement.

    Présenter des accusations formelles au Grand Jury et ils décident de soit délivrer des mandats d'arrêt pour tous les membres de la législation et le président ou donner un ordre pour eux d'assister et d'entendre les accusations. Vous avez besoin d'une page Web et demander aux citoyens de voter en ligne; demander:

    Les députés coupables de haute trahison ou non. J'ai un océan de preuves pour le prouver si quelqu'un besoin de mon aide et témoignage me contacter s'il vous plaît. est de préférence mieux d'émettre un ordre pour tous les députés et le président d'assister à la Cour et si elles apparaissent alors lu les accusations portées contre eux et le Grand Jury décide d'émettre des mandats d'arrêt et les emprisonner pour des motifs de lèse-majesté et Sédition. Si elles ne montrent pas le grand jury doit émettre des mandats d'arrêt pour tous les membres de la législation et le Président.

    Également, donner un ordre de confisquer tous leurs biens privés. En cas de condamnation du Grand Jury doit ordonner à la police d'arrêter les fonctionnaires du gouvernement si la police refuse d'émettre alors un mandat d'arrêt à la police. Personne est au-dessus de la loi. Donc, ne pas seulement faire beaucoup de bruit et de démontrer. Ne vous oubliez les gens sont le gouvernement.

  40. LOL… the Italians are already backtracking like all the other US/NATO – oops, sorry – "populist" stooges in Europe – just look at the brexit fiasco, Spain and the so-called "left wing" LOL "communist" treasonous amerikanakia muppets in Greece!
    Fracking hell… and does anyone still take this lying hypocrite that constantly contradicts himself seriously?!?!?! just look at the results of Varoufucknukle's "policies" and "predictions" – and why do you think he was dropped kicked out of government by his "communist" comrades who initially sold him as a "rock star politician"?!!!!
    It is literally incredible that anyone still falls for his duplicitous bullshit and delusions of adequacy… he is little more than a slimy, treacherous little puppet and on/off US/IMF/Soros stooge and – to quote the moron himself – "a comedy of errors wrapped up in harmless waffle!" which sums up the pathetic, treacherous clown perfectly as he regurgitates his pathetic bull-kaka depending on who's listening and/or paying…

  41. So because some Hungarians went to Germany in 1956, Hungary has to let millions of brown people into their country? How does that make sense?

  42. Europe's economic system has been failing all right BUT:
    * this failure goes back to the oil shocks of the 1970s;
    * the causes of this failure are Europe's generous welfare and unemployment benefits, combined with growing immigration from Africa and the Middle East. A nation cannot be a generous social democracy, while having open borders.
    The way forward requires policy choices that are anathema to most Europeans, esp. Europe's educated elites.

  43. Varoufakis is the guy who used to tell everyone that the world markets will dance greek music if Greece were to leave the EU!!!

  44. PFFFFF such a bad argument https://youtu.be/JzjGl9ZhKlI?t=979, the czechs didn't stand up and left the czech rep after the comunist regime fell
    some did, maybe, maybe 1000 max.
    They did alow political figures to get asylum mostly as a political weapon, (which I would do to to win the cold war)
    so that these intellectuals, politicians, artist, singers would push for the west when they came back, or from the outside through radio or other means.
    My dad did find always funny how Vaclav Have (our firs president after the communist era) had a mercedes hidden in his chicken house,
    where did get a bad actor and a bad play writer, without a real job, living at his parents old house get the money for it?
    be my guess
    Oh by the way czechs coulden't work in the eu untill idk, how many years later or else milions would leave the country for a better live I guess,
    So yeah, now open the gates for the third world, great idea, even thought an eu member state coulden't let his people freely move until some years passed.

  45. https://youtu.be/JzjGl9ZhKlI?t=986 yeah open the flood gates and hope for the best, cos we don't have the right
    XD
    I guess I'm not Greek but a grumpy north european that can't just relay on hope,
    winter is still cold here not like sunny Greece

  46. I think Yanis' evaluations of the issues here are very astute. The UK sacrificed it's coastal fishing industry and the surrounding economy for the benefit of the city of London when it joined the EU 43 years ago. Thatcher sacrificed the heavy industry of the north of England a decade later. Since then, London and the south counties have looked only to Europe. They appear to be doing well for themselves and couldn't understand it when the UK (mostly the north of England) voted to leave the EU. It came as a shock to them. The wealth in the city and the south, has never filtered north. The result is brexit. Brexit isnt about the UK taking back control from the EU, it's about the north of England taking control from the south. If the city of London wont voluntarily redistribute the wealth it has created, then the north of England will sacrifice London and the south on the altar of brexit, in an effort to redistribute the wealth by political force.

  47. the Hungarian Foreign Minister was totally correct! 🙂 and i love it when a cnn presenter is upset on what he was saying 😀 awesome!!!!

  48. One single valuta for different economies simply doesn't work.
    The Euro must be dropped , also the dollar must be divided .

  49. The anti American leftist wants to turn the EU into a federal model of the United States. Hey Yanis, USA federalism works on a model of Capitalism not anti capitalism. Plus u can’t force states to be united. We had our own civil war but at least we all spoke English. You want to force a federal Europe who speak different languages ? Good luck taking the money away from the Germans.

  50. What Greece was doing before 2015 (a big deficit even before interest payments) was unsustainable. It is Greece that had to change, much more than the rest of the EU, as Varoufakis seems to suggest

  51. Sa tous…KOZAKOUS, tha sti vgume apta dasi, eki na dis…"teliotita" eggleziki k "fasi"…k tha sou SKISOUME TO KOLARAKI tha se,POUSTI HMS XANIOTI BAROUFAKI!!!

  52. Those statements only made by scum globalists !!!!!! Workingnpeoole need to pay for all those useless radical migrant !!!! What the fook are those lowlifes saying !!!!!!! Europe for Europeans !!!!! Out culture !!!! Throw those radicals out !!!!

  53. Yanis is a man that sees the problem from all sides without going off the deep end while maintaining common sense. He also has integrity and is not a coward. He, Richard Wolff and Jeremy Corbyn are at the top of the heap.

  54. I admire Varoufakis for almost all i heard him ever say, except this: 15:30
    THERE NEEDS TO BE A BETTER ANWSER TO THE REFUGEE CRISIS.
    The capacity of countries (like germany) to absorb those masses of mostly male and under-qualified economic migrants, bringing some cultures and ideas with them that don't mix well with an open european culture, is FINITE NOT INFINITE. The recognition of this fact and the necessity of a basic border security is almost all you need to win the center-"right-wing"-supporters.

  55. what kind of centrist capitalist bullshit is this interviewer? go back to your liberal la la land, WE ARE THE FAR-LEFT, and liberalism needs our help (or it would perish)

  56. The economy in the UK isn't going well, child poverty has exponentially increased and 70% of those additional children living in poverty come from working parents. Personal debt has significantly increased, mental health issues have significantly increased and we've a nation that's tearing itself apart. The list is endless

  57. The interviewer's institutionally biased for starters. How do we pay for it without taxing the people? Simple enough. Shut down the tax haven system & charge multinationals for access to domestic markets on a national level. That way they pay where make their sales, not some random low tax regime using transfer pricing to dodge reasonable taxation..

  58. I get that he needs to say he'll invest in green technology because that's the popular belief of what needs to happen but in reality that would be insane… The green technology industry is a massive money sink and he is talking about taking the 100 trillion in pension funds to do it. That is just insane

  59. What ist the point in a booming economy, when the real wages and purchuasing power stagnate since more then a decade and everything is getting more expensive? What is the piont in the fact that 13% of the german population have as much capital as the other 87% and the trend is going on. The number of poor people is growing dangerously, even thought we have a "strong economy" in one of the richest countries in the world . Those facts are dynamite for the social society. If it goes on like this, what do you think will happen when the next economic crisis hits us?
