Yanis Varoufakis says EU ‘waiting for bubble to burst’ with states poised for financial crisis

Yanis Varoufakis says EU ‘waiting for bubble to burst’ with states poised for financial crisis.

Brexiteers were right! Varoufakis mocks EU vaccine fiasco and exposes Brussels cover-up.
FORMER Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis has admitted the UK would have been caught up in the EU’s coronavirus vaccine disaster had it remained a member.
The left-wing economist added he has “a little bit of egg on my face” for supporting the Remain campaign. Europe has been hit by repeated supply problems and is currently lagging far behind the UK on the number of COVID-19 jabs administered. Britain has vaccinated around one person in every 20, versus a little over one person in four for the EU.
EU member states gave the European Commission authority to buy vaccines on their behalf, whereas Britain chose to act independently.

IMPORTANT! -None of these images, music & video clips were

(Rerun) Ep 46: The Artificial Worlds that Shape our World

Gaming platforms are the dominant media type of our era. Globally gaming generates over 150 billion USD in revenue, more the global music industry (20 billion USD) and the movie industry (45 billion USD) combined. And gaming resides at the extreme leading edge information technology — employing advancements in machine learning and agent based modeling in the creation of artificial worlds, physics and characters. These worlds can be so elaborate that real world economists are brought in to design in-game economies and currencies.
