Capitalism will eat democracy — unless we speak up

Economist Yanis Varoufakis, the former Minister of Finance for Greece, says you can be in politics today but not be in power — because real power now belongs to those who control the economy. He believes that the mega-rich and corporations are cannibalizing the political sphere, causing financial crisis.
