Horizons of Freedom: The Cunning of Freedom in times of a Twin Authoritarianism

On Friday, November 6th, from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, Yanis Varoufakis gave a talk entitled The Cunning of Freedom in times of a Twin Authoritarianism within the annual series Horizons of Freedom.

As capitalism is transforming into a species of technofeudalism, two seemingly mutually opposing authoritarianisms are rising up. Can an authentic freedom survive these circumstances and culminate into a progressive alternative worth fighting for?

Yanis Varoufakis is a member of the Greek Parliament, Professor of Economics at the University of Athens; Honorary Professor of Political Economy at the University of Sydney; Honorary Professor of Law, Economics and Finance at the University of Turin; Distinguished Visiting Professor of Political Economy at Kings College, University of London.
