The Council of the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE), the largest pluralist economics association in Europe, welcomes the appointment of Yanis Varoufakis as Finance Minister of Greece. EAEPE and other non-orthodox economics associations in Europe and the USA have had long-standing fruitful interactions with Professor Varoufakis. He has often contributed to our annual conferences. Professor Varoufakis, established non-orthodox economist and renowned critic of simplistic neoclassical economic thought and of one-sided neoliberal policy prescriptions, will need all support of the critical Greek and European economists. We wish him all success against the biased economic ideas that have been setting Europe adrift and engulfed Greece in the abyss of an economic and humanitarian catastrophe. We wish him and the newly appointed Greek government the best luck and greatest success for an economic and social renaissance of their country.
