"It is well known that Varoufakis was taken off Greece’s
negotiating team shortly after Syriza took office; he was still in
charge of the country’s finances but no longer in the room. It’s long
been unclear why. In April, he said vaguely that it was because “I try
and talk economics in the Eurogroup” – the club of 19 finance ministers
whose countries use the Euro – “which nobody does.” I asked him what
happened when he did.
“It’s not that it didn’t go down well – there was point
blank refusal to engage in economic arguments. Point blank. You put
forward an argument that you’ve really worked on, to make sure it’s
logically coherent, and you’re just faced with blank stares. It is as if
you haven’t spoken. What you say is independent of what they say. You
might as well have sung the Swedish national anthem – you’d have got the
same reply.”
