This is an insightful article from Spiegel. It’s a good read. Check it out!
Mr. Varoufakis, the new Finance Minister of Greece is by profession a teacher of economics, with limited other experience in life. Unlike most of us, he seems unfamiliar with the basic lesson in life of the ‘new boy on the block’. The new boy soon learns the lesson of ‘fight’ or ‘flight’.
Unfortunately, Mr. Varoufakis was not briefed on these basic cautions in his early meetings with Germany’s Finance Minister, Mr. Schäuble. Now I suggest that Mr. Varoufakis perhaps has an enemy. So it’s really up to Varoufakis to rebuild the relationship. After all, surely Greece still needs Germany’s support?
