The Syriza victory yesterday marked a potential end to the vicious cycle of neoliberal austerity for Greece. The Eurozone is in a deep and prolonged crisis, beyond repair—and certainly not in the interests of Europe’s working people. Syriza MP Costas Lapavitsas is the author of our instant ebook response to the election – Against the Troika: Crisis and Austerity in the Eurozone – publishing today. This new book, co-authored with Heiner Flassbeck, is a radical anti-capitalist alternative to Eurozone austerity and a blueprint for real change in a continent wracked by crisis and austerity. Now 50% off on Verso website, making it only £3.00!
Building on the economic analysis of two of Europe’s leading thinkers, Heiner Flassbeck and Costas Lapavitsas, Against the Troika: Crisis and Austerity in the Eurozone is the first book to propose a strategic left-wing plan for how peripheral countries could exit the euro. With a change in government in Greece, and looming political transformations in countries such as Spain, this major intervention lays out a radical, anti-capitalist programme at a critical juncture for Europe.
