There is no austerity. It's class war.

There is no austerity. It's class war."This is not austerity happening. The protestant ethic that you spend less when things are tough - which is terrible microeconomics - nevertheless, even that is not being used.The thing about it...  I had to resign because I refused to take 85 billion from the European taxpayers. There is no austerity involved with that. This is profligacy. If you look at the 100s of billions that has been given to Greece: there is no austerity. It's classwar. It is CLASSWAR." Says the former finance minister of Greece. On Monday,  Yanis Varoufakis appeared in a panel discussion to set the stage for the live launch of #DiEM25 on Tuesday - which is taking shape as an online manifestation of pure Democracy. @yanisvaroufakis
