*A New Statesman Book to Read in 2020*Imagine a world with no banks.
No stock market. No tech giants. No billionaires. Imagine if Occupy and Extinction Rebellion actually won. In Another Now world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis shows us what such a world would look like.
Far from being a fantasy, he describes how it could have come about - and might yet.
But would we really want it?Varoufakis's boundary-breaking new book confounds expectations of what the good society would look like and reveals the uncomfortable truth about our desire for a better world...This is the book to make you reconsider how we live and what we can change for the better this Christmas. 'One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope' Slavoj Zizek
