Recording Ruin in Real Time: New Greek Finance Minister Promises to Keep Blog

Yanis Varoufakis

Yanis Varoufakis plans to update a blog he has, while he is finance minister of Greece.

 Today he wrote at the blog:
 Finance Ministry slows blogging down but ends it not
The time to put up or shut up has, I have been told, arrived. My plan is to defy such advice. To continue blogging here even though it is normally considered irresponsible for a Finance Minister to indulge in such crass forms of communication. Naturally, my blog posts will become more infrequent and shorter. But I do hope they compensate with juicier views, comments and insights.
For hope to be revived we must all strive to change the ways of a dismal past. Maintaining an open line with the outside world may be a small step in that direction.
So, keep watching this space!
