5. Go ahead and use the inet yard sign

Dragonfli made it for and said I can do what I want with it.

I want to put it in public domain.

As for cloning Yanis himself, I don't think we've developed the technology. We just have to make sure that Monsanto doesn't pre-emptively copyright a Yanis clone before we declare it public domain.

7. TY, Jack Rabbit, don't mind if I do...it would be right & just for this to be in the public domain.

TY, Dragonfli, too! Now go & run & make this go viral....

6. We ought to be having this "grass roots" discussion all across the U.S.

I think U.S. Americans ( ) are still looking to other nations to assess the relationship between GDP and long term viability of our so-called economy.

I respect what this guy has to say. Somebody should start the discussion, and it looks like Greece is the cradle of that discussion.

8. Great minds think alike.

I just watched this before you posted it. And yes, as someone below said, I wish we could clone him, or at least borrow him after he sorts out the Greek economic crisis. He is what the Greeks call a pallikari, a brave and stalwart man whom you can count on in a crisis. I love him and so do my European friends who are watching what is going on Greece very closely.

10. Refreshing, intelligent, thoroughly honest and much needed mind for this century.

My only complaint is the loud music and the script on screen - distracting from the presentation. I'm going to be watching and listening to every video of him on the youtube sidebar.

Save this one, which I went through anyway, I will be listening to all of them and digesting his vision. I agree with a poster above, he is one that can be counted on in a crisis and to me he is more enlightening than any other analysis I have read, he media has it all wrong.

He outshines the official leadership with its blustering tone. Yanis is what some call a Rennaissance man.
A realist who sees things as they are, and is not pushing slogans, disdain or labels, but solutions.

Thanks for posting the video to show the depth of this man. I wish he'd be invited to speak in D.C. by the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

And wonder if he and Sanders could do an interview, online, television or radio, conferenced or in person.

11. Varoufakis is completely deserving of everything you've said and more.

We need Syriza in the USA.

12. Varoufakis has his website where he continues to blog, not as frequently as before since he

is hard at work.
