  • Europe’s Duty to the Refugees – Europe’s Duty to Itself, May 8, 2016: Part 1, 110.29 min; Part 2, 83.10 min; Europe closes down. Not only with regard to flight, migration and refugees, the current atmosphere in Europe is characterized by political and intellectual bigotry and self-imposed isolation. Hence, „the European Union will either be democratised or it will disintegrate“, to quote the recurring theme of the Democracy in Europe Movement (DiEM25), recently founded by former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis and numerous European politicians, intellectuals and activists.  
    DiEM25 rejects the scandalous treatment of refugees in all European countries, the wide-spread strengthening of new and old nationalism, and the neo-ordo-liberal economic policies, for which there supposedly is no alternative. Instead, DiEM25 promotes the vision of a different Europe: a Europe that defends democracy, justice and human rights, a Europe that puts the needs of the people over the wishes of banks and corporations, and a Europe that is fully aware of the EU’s great historical achievement of bringing peace to a continent that had been haunted by war and destruction for centuries …;
  • Yanis Varoufakis – Noam Chomsky, NYPL, 103.16 min, 26 April 2016 … Yanis Varoufakis considers himself a politician by necessity, not by choice. An economist and academic by training, he became Greece’s finance minister amidst the country’s financial crisis, creating an image for himself both beloved and reviled.

YANIS VAROUFAKIS is the former finance minister of Greece.

He lives in Athens. NOAM CHOMSKY is widely credited with having revolutionized the field of modern linguistics. Chomsky is the author of numerous best-selling political works, which have been translated into scores of countries worldwide. Among his most recent books are Hegemony or Survival, Failed States, Hopes and Prospects, and Masters of Mankind. Haymarket Books recently released twelve of his classic works in new editions.

  • Greece and The Future of the Eurozone, 65.11 min, April 25, 2016 … No country in Europe has been hit harder by the 2008 global economic crisis and subsequent downturn than Greece. After years of polarizing austerity measures and fears of a Greek exit from the Eurozone, the country is slowly emerging from an extended period of economic instability. The Greek recovery, however, is far from over. Yanis Varoufakis served as Greek finance minister from January through July 2015 and opposed the EU’s third and final bailout agreement for Greece. He will discuss how the Greek economy is faring today and how the Eurozone crisis affected the rest of the global economy. What lessons have been learned about the risks and benefits of a shared economic system? How can we protect those most vulnerable to economic shocks from another economic crisis? Speaker Yanis Varoufakis is Former Greek Finance Minister, and Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Athens;
