Talking to My Daughter About the Economy

In Talking to My Daughter About the Economy, activist Yanis Varoufakis, Greece’s former finance minister and the author of the international bestseller Adults in the Room, pens a series of letters to his young daughter, educating her about the business, politics, and corruption of world economics. Yanis Varoufakis has appeared before heads of nations, assemblies of experts, and countless students around the world. Now, he faces his most important—and difficult—audience yet. Using clear language and vivid examples, Varoufakis offers a series of letters to his young daughter about the economy: how it operates, where it came from, how it benefits some while impoverishing others. Taking bankers and politicians to task, he explains the historical origins of inequality among and within nations, questions the pervasive notion that everything has its price, and shows why economic instability is a chronic risk. Finally, he discusses the inability of market-driven policies to address the rapidly declining health of the planet his daughter’s generation stands to inherit. Throughout, Varoufakis wears his expertise lightly. He writes as a parent whose aim is to instruct his daughter on the fundamental questions of our age—and through that knowledge, to equip her against the failures and obfuscations of our current system and point the way toward a more democratic alternative.

A Letter to My Daughter copyright 2007, 2009 by Kim S. All rights reserved. Where my first book, A Letter to My Son, took me ten years to complete (from initial conception to publication), this second book was written in only two months time. It seemed to flow out of my mind faster than my hands could type ... a wonderful dilemma for a writer. When I wrote A Letter to My Daughter, I was in a positive frame of mind, and I wanted to find the best way I could to express that. I also wanted to show how my mindset had evolved over the past three years-to really contrast this book with my first. [ So, where the first book dwells on dark topics like adversity and victimization, the second is focused on hope and personal accountability. [ Where the first book cover is a pale yellow and gray colour, the second is covered with all kinds of colours. [ My author picture on the first book is done in black and white, I appear sombre in it, and I'm standing alone with my back against a wall; my author picture on the second book is done in full colour, I appear cheerful in it, and I'm surrounded by people I love. [ Of course, the puzzle also symbolizes our interconnection regardless of our individual beliefs. That was the purpose of this cover and book as a whole. It is me expressing a very joyful time in my life and sharing it with those I love. It is intended as an empowering message about being true to yourself while respecting other people's choices. It's about honouring all the different beliefs in our world and celebrating their similarities rather than belabouring their differences.

This book came about when my only daughter passed away in the early morning of Easter Sunday 2013. She had cancer. She was doing very well. The day before she passed, on Saturday, she and her loving husband had gone to do some shopping. They ate dinner, watched a movie, and went to bed around 10:00 p.m. or so. Her husband found her about 4:00 a.m., hanging over the bathtub. She was gone. That was the darkest day of my life. She was only forty-four years old and a new grandmother. She loved her babies and her husband. She is dearly missed.

Letters to My Daughter

A Father Writes about Torah and the Jewish Woman

Through a series of letters from a father to his college-age daughter, Dr. Walter Orenstein traces the role and the history of women in the Torah and shows, through text and commentary, that in traditional Jewish society the status of women is equal to that of men, though their function is often quite different. Letters to My Daughter: A Father Writes about Torah and the Jewish Woman introduces the reader to the Oral Law, to the exciting realm of Halakhah, and to some of the essential principles of Jewish philosophy. Although this work is addressed to a college student, it is meant for all women and men regardless of their backgrounds. Those who have a limited background in Jewish studies and seek an understanding of the principles of Jewish belief and the way that these principles impact upon her or his life will find this book a useful beginning to the world of Jewish scholarship. Those students whose Jewish education has taken them far beyond the rudiments of Torah knowledge but who are concerned with the status of women in Orthodox Judaism and lack the training to probe the sources on their own will find this book enlightening. This book also addresses itself to the Jewish man or woman who was raised in the secular world but who now searches for truth, meaning, and purpose in the Torah, hoping that its words will provide spiritual guidance, personal insight, and divine wisdom.
