'One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope' Slavoj Žižek

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 confronts us with the greatest question: are we able to build a better society, despite our flaws.

Review

Combining a provocative thought-experiment with a deeply original sci-fi narrative, this book is both visionary in its search for new possibilities and realistic in its embrace of the complexities of our human nature -- Alfonso Cuarón, Oscar-winning Director of Roma and Gravity

A landmark work ... A vision of a new society with new ways of thinking is possibly the most important thing an artist can offer at the moment -- Brian Eno

I am enjoying Yanis Varoufakis's Another Now. The way we live is not inevitable -- Jeanette Winterson

I could not recommend this more. If you're looking for a sense of optimism, a sense of political possibility, this book is very important -- Owen Jones

The reason Varoufakis seems to have captured the imaginations of so many is that his words about the European crisis speak universal truths about democracy, capitalism and social policy ― Guardian

There is something exciting, even invigorating, about envisioning this world alongside Varoufakis ... one finishes Another Now buzzing with a sense of possibility ― The Monthly

Another Now is structurally, ideologically and linguistically an extraordinary work -- Zoe Williams

I've absolutely loved reading [Another Now] ... the second I started reading it, it surprised and intrigued me -- Matthew Taylor, RSA

Another Now is not only a marvellously good read - it is a notable addition to the literature of social change ― The Wire

One of my few heroes -- Slavoj Zizek

The most interesting man in the world ― Business Insider
