Yanis Varoufakis – Another Now, Beyond Technofeudalism – Live on 16 April at 6 pm CET


A conversation with Yanis Varoufakis on his vision for an alternative world, beyond the present version of capitalism – that he calls technofeudalism – presented in his new book, Another Now.

Yanis Varoufakis has been Finance Minister of Greece in 2015 at the time of the Greek debt crisis, is Member of the Hellenic Parliament, founder of the transnational Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25), co-founder of the Progressive International organization. He is Professor of Economics at the University of Athens, has a MS in mathematical statistics from Birmingham University and a PhD in Economics from the University of Essex.

Yanis Varoufakis is one of the leading public intellectuals with worldwide recognition and we are really honored he accepted to have a public conversation on the issues discussed in his new book.

Another Now is a fascinating book. It is a science fiction novel, in which he uses as a literary device the “many-world” theory to describe another world in which his vision of a market economy without capitalism has come to existence, following an alternative history that departed from our world in 2008, during the financial crisis. This device gives him the possibility to describe the details of the organization of this “Another Now”. Personally, I could identify with Kosta, the technologist, one of the novel’s protagonists.

I21 is a series of conversations with Giuseppe Iannaccone on how to prepare for the future, and the impact of technology and science on society, jobs, culture, economics, education. The playlist of i21 is here:

This conversation is part of the EVO4.0 research project, partly funded by the POR FESR Tuscany Region 2014-2020 (Action 1.1.4 sub b) within the Crosslab IT& Society of the Departiment of Information Engineering, Università di Pisa.
