By Yanis Varoufakis
Rare is the person who could expertly comment – in a single
interview! – on the rise of NFTs and their origins in the virtual worlds of gaming, the logic of the emerging regime of technofeudalism, and the folly of El Salvador’s Bitcoin-heavy negotiating tactics with the IMF. Luckily, we have found this person in Yanis Varoufakis, the prominent economist, politician, and public intellectual, who is also former Greek finance minister. Yanis was kind enough to grant us an extensive interview, which provides a panoramic (and, at times, rather critical) view of what is going at the intersection of money, macroeconomics, and the digital.
