And the weak suffer what they must? : Europe's crisis and America's economic future by Yanis Varoufakis( Book )
5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 280 libraries worldwide
""The strong do as they can and the weak suffer what they must."--Thucydides The fate of the global economy hangs in the balance, and Europe is doing its utmost to undermine it, to destabilize America, and to spawn new forms of authoritarianism. Europe has dragged the world into hideous morasses twice in the last one hundred years ... it can do it again. Yanis Varoufakis, the former Finance Minister of Greece, shows here that the Eurozone is a house of cards destined to fall without a radical change in direction. And, if the European Union falls apart, he argues, the global economy will not be far behind. Once America abandoned Europe in 1971 from the dollar zone, Europe's leaders decided to create a monetary union of 18 nations without control of their own money, without democratic accountability, and without a government to support the Central Bank. This bizarre economic super-power was equipped with none of the shock absorbers necessary to contain a financial crisis, while its design ensured that, when it came, the crisis would be massive. When disaster hit in 2009, Varoufakis argues that Europe turned against itself, humiliating millions of innocent citizens, driving populations to despair, and buttressing a form of bigotry unseen since the Second World War. Here, Varoufakis offers concrete policies that the rest of the world can take part in to intervene and help save Europe from impending catastrophe, and presents the ultimate case against austerity. With passionate, informative, and at times humorous prose, he warns that the implosion of an admittedly crisis-ridden and deeply irrational European capitalism should be avoided at all cost"--
Game theory : a critical text by Shaun Hargreaves Heap( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 255 libraries worldwide
"With an uncompromising commitment to intellectual honesty, it seeks out game theory's strengths and limitations in a bid to draw out their implications for any theory of society which relies exclusively on liberal individualism. A new generation of students of game theory will grow to appreciate this superb text whilst fans of the first edition will eagerly devour this long-awaited update."--Jacket
Rational conflict by Yanis Varoufakis( Book )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 libraries worldwide
The study of economic rationality is attracting increasing attention from other disciplines as well as continuing to be the subject of debate within economics. At its heart is the notion that, in a situation of choice or confrontation, knowledge of an individual's desires and beliefs will allow their actions to be predicted. Yanis Varoufakis argues that this is an ideal abstraction which is both inapplicable and ineffective. Using examples from industrial relations, diplomacy, hostage crises and the law, he shows that it is impossible to quantify the aspirations of individuals in these conflicts, and that traditional theory ignores both the wider context and the history of similar cases
The global minotaur : America, Europe, and the future of the global economy by Yanis Varoufakis( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 227 libraries worldwide
The author explodes the myth that financialization, ineffectual regulation of banks, greed and globalization were the root causes of the global economic crisis. Rather, they are symptoms of a much deeper malaise which can be traced all the way back to the Great Crash of 1929, then on through to the 1970s: the time when a 'Global Minotaur' was born. Just as the Athenians maintained a steady flow of tributes to the Cretan beast, so the 'rest of the world' began sending incredible amounts of capital to America and Wall Street. Thus, the Global Minotaur became the 'engine' that pulled the world economy from the early 1980s to 2008. Today's crisis in Europe, the heated debates about austerity versus further fiscal stimuli in the US, the clash between China's authorities and the Obama administration on exchange rates are the inevitable symptoms of the weakening Minotaur; of a global 'system' which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. Going beyond this, the author lays out the options available to us for reintroducing a modicum of reason into a highly irrational global economic order

Capitalism ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
"Capitalism has been the engine of unprecedented economic growth and social transformation. But how much do we understand about how it originated, and what makes it work? Capitalism is an ambitious but accessible six-part series that looks at both the history of ideas and the social forces that have shaped the capitalist world. Featuring interviews with some of the world's great historians, economists, anthropologists, and social critics, Capitalism questions the myth of the unfettered free market, explores the nature of debt and commodities, and retraces some of the great economic debates of the last 200 years."--Container

Economic indeterminacy : a personal encounter with the economists' peculiar nemesis by Yanis Varoufakis( Book )
2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
This volume is a collection of some of the best and most influential work of Yanis Varoufakis. The chapters all address the issue of economic indeterminacy, and the place of a socialized Homo Economicus within the economy. The book addresses Varoufakis' key interpretation regarding the way in which neoclassical economics deals with the twin problems of complexity and indeterminacy. He argues that all neoclassical modelling revolves around three meta-axioms: Methodological individualism, Methodological instrumentalism and the Methodological Imposition of Equilibrium. Eac

Modeste proposition pour résoudre la crise de la zone euro by James K Galbraith( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"This paper presents three simple policies for overcoming the crisis that can be implemented immediately and require none of the moves such as national guarantees or fi scal transfers to which many Europeans are opposed, nor moves towards federation that entail Treaty changes, which electorates are most likely to reject. The logic behind these policy proposals is juxtaposed with the false dilemmas that currently impede clear thinking and immobilise Europe's policymakers"--record for an English edition

Foundations of economics : a beginner's companion by Yanis Varoufakis( file )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Aiming to breathe life into an often dry discipline by linking key economic concepts with wider debates and issues, this text presents brain-teasers, philosophical questions and politics in mainstream economics. The book covers the principal foundation-economics concepts and addresses in detail three main areas: consumption and choice, production and markets, and government and the state. Each is discussed in terms of what the conventional textbook says, how these ideas developed in historical and philosophical terms, and whether or not they make sense. Assumptions about economics as a discipline are challenged, and the anxieties of students are discussed
