"In the most comprehensive guide to the contemporary economic crisis yet written, Yanis Varoufakis traces out the path from post-war US economic supremacy to the current predicament. This book’s provocative thesis, written in lively and impassioned prose, is that which neither the US nor the EU nor any other nation can now restore robust global growth. Whether you agree or disagree, this book’s lively and impassioned prose will engage you both heart and mind, and hold you in thrall to the last word. The Global Minotaur is a masterwork that registers for all time the challenge of our time." -- Gary Dymski, University of California, Riverside
“One of the best, brightest and most innovative economists on the planet.” – Steve Keen, author of Debunking Economics and Debunking Economics Revised and Expanded Edition (Zed Books, Oct. 2011)
“Yanis Varoufakis is a rare economist: skilled at explaining ideas, happy to join in public debates and able to put his discipline in a broader context. You may not agree with what he says, but you'll enjoy the way he says it.” -- Aditya Chakrabortty, Economics writer for The Guardian
