Summary

Syriza’s victory in the Greek general election in January 2015 is a truly historic and profound event -- the first government of the radical left in Europe since World War Two. In this short ebook, extracted from the updated edition of The Global Minotaur, Yanis Varoufakis, the new finance minister of Greece and a Syriza MP, outlines his economic and political thinking and how he believes Europe can move beyond cuts and austerity. Varoufakis shows how today’s crisis in Europe is one inevitable symptom of a global ‘system’ which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. With powerful clarity and conviction, he lays out the options available to us for reintroducing reason into a highly irrational global economic order.This is a unique insight into the thinking of a key figure in the Syriza government, who is set to become a hugely influential figure in European politics.

    Leaders need to be forceful--to assert themselves and their capabilities and to push others to perform. Leaders also need to be enabling--to tap into and bring out the capabilities of others. The problem is that many executives see forceful leadership and enabling leadership as mutually exclusive, or strongly prefer one or the other, and therefore lack the versatility to be truly effective. This publication explains how executives can overcome the emotional barriers to expanding their skill sets in one direction or the other.

    Mastering the Money Mindset is the first, but most important, step on the Road to Riches. 
    Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Rockefeller, Warren Buffett - what do they have in common? They mastered the money mindset and had money work for them...instead of the other way around. 
    No-one can embark on that journey to real riches without first understanding the importance of our view of money, how we interact with it, how we attract it or repel it. Do we have a healthy respect for money? Do we desire it? Or do we act as if we are not worthy enough to possess it? Do we consider wealth as wicked, or do we value the power that such resources can provide, the power to make a difference in our lives and the lives of so many others. 
    Without the proper money mindset you will never possess the level of wealth that is your potential. The purpose of this succinct and salient synthesis of life-altering lessons is to coach you, to open your mind to the idea of possessing real riches, to drive you to desire it so badly that it is not a matter of if but when. This concise and critical work is designed to stimulate your mind with money-making tips and ideas to get you started on that road to riches, to train you to maximize your full money potential. 
    This money mindset is the foundation for the art of making money. This work will provide you with the firm footing required to make this happen. It will teach you how to desire it, pursue it, act on that driving desire, and achieve it.  It will be that catalyst which will launch your money creativity and creation. 
    Read, re-read this guide, then run, don't walk, down your ROAD to RICHES..

    In modern Australia, productivity is all that matters, our leaders tell us. Economic growth above all else. But is this really what we, the people, want? Does it make our lives and our communities better?
    
    If the high priests of economics want the credit for Australia’s economic growth over the last three decades, they must also wear the blame for the social destruction that has accompanied it – the devastation of once prosperous industrial centres and the suburbs they sustained, as factories closed and workers were forced to abandon their trades. The social costs of this ‘economic modernisation’ have been immense, but today are virtually ignored. The fracturing of communities continues apace.
    
    An Economy Is Not a Society is a passionate and personal J’accuse against the people whose abandonment of moral policy making has ripped the guts out of Australia’s old industrial communities, robbed the country of manufacturing knowhow, reversed our national ethos of egalitarianism and broken the sense of common purpose that once existed between rulers and ruled.
    
    Those in power, Dennis Glover argues, must abandon the idea that a better society is purely about offering individuals more dollars in their pockets. What we desperately need is a conversation about the lives, working conditions, jobs and communities we want for ourselves and our families – and we need to choose a future that is designed to benefit all the Australian people, not just some.
    
    Dennis Glover is the son and brother of Dandenong factory workers. He grew up in Doveton before studying at Monash University and King’s College, Cambridge, where he was awarded a PhD in history. He has worked for two decades as an academic, newspaper columnist, political adviser and speechwriter to Labor leaders and senior ministers.
