    I think that One-Liner Wednesday may have been cancelled today.

    I shared this with two of my sons, yesterday. Start at 15:30 to skip the introductions.

    Yanis Varoufakis on The Future of Capitalism

    Actually, from 1:03 to 1:14:30 is introduction of a graduate student (and activist) from Norway giving her experiential learning and view as she will participate in the QA at 1:24 (and there is a third participant besides the MC lady as fourth).

    I meant “from 1:03:00 …” for Eva (from Norway) and that “she will participate in the QA at 1:24:00 …”

    The third participant speaks beginning at 1:38:16.

    This was five years ago.

      🤦🏼‍♀️ NOT 1:38:16 X!

      1:15:35 for the professor from the UK.
