Publisher Description

What happens when you take on the establishment? In Adults in the Room, Yanis Varoufakis, the renowned economist and former finance minister of Greece, gives the full account of his clash with the mightiest economic and political forces on earth. Enlivened by unvarnished accounts of closed-door meetings and encounters with Barack Obama, Emmanuel Macron, and others, Varoufakis's memoir recounts his urgent struggle to relieve Greece's debt crisis without resorting to austerity. The result is a stark warning that the economic policies once embraced by the EU and the White House have failed-and spawned authoritarianism, populist revolt, and instability throughout the Western world. Book jacket.
