After Democracy: What’s next for Greece; plus: The Gaza War, One Year Later

Greece - OXIGreece rejects austerity with a landslide vote of 61% against the structural adjustment proposals advanced by its creditors. But, where does that leave negotiations?

As high-level meetings kick off across Europe, there’s one regular who won’t be attending: Greek Finance Minister Yanis Veroufakis. He tendered his resignation shortly after winning the referendum, suggesting it might help negotiations go more smoothly. We’ll discuss why, and what’s next.

 

Guests:

  • Alexander Mizan, Treasurer of the American Hellenic Council (currently in Athens)
  • James Galbraith, economist who serves as a professor of Government at the University of Texas, where he worked closely with just-resigned Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis.  He’s the author of many books, the most recent of which is The End of Normal: the great crisis and the future of growth.
  • Max Blumenthal, award-winning journalist who’s spent the past five years reporting from inside Israel and occupied Palestine – his new book is an account of Israel’s 2014 bombardment and invasion of the Gaza Strip, it’s called The 51-Day War: ruin and resistance in Gaza
