Yanis Varoufakis on the Greek economy, prospects for reform and economic renewal

April 20, 2015

The Greek government has been very active in the US recently as it tries to get the US Government to put pressure on the Troika to change its approach. Indications are that the US is pretty sympathetic and the events of the next few months will indicate if there has indeed been any shift in the Troika and the Greek situation.

As part of the Syriza diplomatic offensive on April 16th, the Global Economy and Development program and the Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy at the Brookings Institution hosted Greek Minister of Finance Yanis Varoufakis to discuss what faces the Greek economy, the prospects for reform and economic renewal, and the details of any future strategic agreement among Greece, its European partners, and the International Monetary Fund. Clear and interesting presentation. Here is the video.
