Mr Varoufakis was certainly one of the more colourful characters in recent 'episodes'. He has been called 'Mr Bruce Willis (of "Die Hard" fame) of Greece'; photographed arriving at events on Motobike; and gave speeches that offered the most memorable quotes.
But he is also a economic professor who has been writing about the financial crises that began with the 2008 meltdown in the global financial system.
As a TV junkie who is obsessed with reluctant (anti?)heroes, this Shopkeeper certain hope that Mr Varoufakis' exit is temporary.
This bookshop has on its shelve copies of his recent publication "The Global Minotaur- America, Europe and the Future of the Global Economy (2nd Edition)" in which he explained the origin of the 2008 Crisis and its repercussion. The fact that he made use of Greek mythology in weaving together the narratives made the book all the more readable. And in fact, the 3rd edition of the book shall be released very soon and this Shopkeeper is looking forward to learning from the updated sections, given the eventful 6 months in 2015 in which he served as Greece's Finance Minister.
