VIDEO: Yanis Varoufakis praises global street paper movement

Greek anti-austerity figurehead Yanis Varoufakis praised the work of street papers, in an address to delegates at the INSP Global Street Paper Summit 2016 this week.

The left-wing economist and former Greek finance minister also argued that homelessness is no accidental byproduct, but an essential part of capitalism.
