In a purely academic discussion were our panelists had the opportunity to ask the minister several difficult questions, Professor Varoufakis articulates on Greece's current economic circumstances and future. He also talks about the euro zone architecture and its future. Panelists will respond to audience's questions. The minister had the opportunity to respond to a few questions we received from members of the Houston Greek community.

Excerpt from "Thourios" the most popular pre-revolution poem that inspired Greeks and people of other Balkan counties. The poem was written by Rigas Ferreos in the then spoken Greek language
Ώς πότε παλικάρια να ζούμεν στα στενά,
Mονάχοι σα λιοντάρια, σταις ράχαις στα βουνά;
Σπηλαίς να κατοικούμεν, να βλέπωμεν κλαδιά,
Nα φεύγωμ' απ' τον Kόσμον, για την πικρή σκλαβιά.
Nα χάνωμεν αδέλφια, Πατρίδα, και Γονείς,
Tους φίλους, τα παιδιά μας, κι' όλους τους συγγενείς.
Καλλιώναι μίας ώρας ελεύθερη ζωή,
Παρά σαράντα χρόνοι σκλαβιά, και φυλακή.
Τι σ' ωφελεί αν ζήσης, και είσαι στη σκλαβιά.
