A world economy clown show.

(…) Yanis Varoufakis has written the book “Talking to my daughter about the economy” in an ambition to get young people to believe in their ability to make a difference and to think of new ways of building society (…) Anja Suša makes a thrilling performance about power, money and debt, for children. A kind of democratization of the economic conversation (…), an odyssey through the economic history of humanity and the making available of the diffuse concept that we often give up to the economists.

“What we are talking about …” is fun and pedagogical without being prejudiced, humble before the fact that it is not easy to give an exhaustive and satisfactory answer to why the world looks like it does, to a twelve-year-old who is loaded with questions like “but why?” EXPRESSEN
