Varoufakis tours Europe, hedging explained and Uber Google face-off

Greece’s newly elected prime minister and finance minister have been touring Europe to meet their counterparts.

Before that, the finance minister Yanis Varoufakis met the head of the Eurogroup’s in Athens and during that encounter said Greece has no intention of cooperating in the future with the lending ‘troika’ of the European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund.
