This is a TED talk from the former finance minister of Greece who was frustrated by being in power but having no power. The people with the money would not let him do what he was elected for. He talks of the twin peaks of debt and of wealth that is not being invested. We have long associated a thriving economy with a healthy democracy, but they are not linked, and are increasingly separate. He is asked if he ever made mistakes. He admits he did every day. Brave stuff. He is accused of being a Marxist, but he seems to be making a lot of sense. Maybe I’m one too. Maybe we all are. Except the bankers of course. This is fascinating, and timely.
