In case of Grexit, Varoufakis needs to step down

In my (humble) opinion, Varoufakis has proven with each interview that he lacks the knowledge to do a Grexit (a return to sovereign Drachma) properly.
You can read Warren Mosler's Big Fat MMT Grexit Strategy and you can read Mosler's criticisms of Varoufakis' statements on 'financial doomsday' should Greece exit the EuroZone.
As such, Varoufakis needs to step down as finance minister and that position should go to an MMTer; Rania Antonopoulos comes to mind. You can see her presentation of Greece's unemployment & poverty problem & her macroeconomic solution for it, i.e. the voluntary Job Guarantee proposal.
It is my opinion that Varoufakis doesn't have the heterodox understanding or geopolitical knowledge for that matter necessary to handle this scenario - should it (finally) occur - because only Syriza and the Greek citizens have demonstrated their willingness to stay in the EZ, while the Troika (euphemistically called the Euro Group) has done nothing outside of keeping the neocolonialist boot parked on Greece's throat. There is no sensible negation to be had with a 'partner' who is in fact behaving as your master and who is only offering to bleed the country with further austerity packages - i.e. privatizing profits and socializing losses.

My promotion with DBS started yesterday. Help me remain in the top free ranks.

I know you have better things to do in Summer, but if you can find time for a little bit of reading on your E-reader, make an effort and check out An Empire Of Traitors.
If you enjoy POV narration, medieval life & intrigue, politics, murder, treachery, epic battles, and magical realism - then the Of Hate And Laughter books are for you.
Try a sample and if you like, then download - it's free! Book 2 - A Heretical Divide - has a little bit of MMT (Modern Monetary Theory/Chartalism) in it. Book 3 - A Dance With Fools And Devils - will have a little bit more of it. Note: China used fiat notes around the year 1000 AD, so it's nothing new really. Once again, if you decide to inquire into my work & share it with your friends, I'm greatly appreciative of that.
