Three Cretans in SYRIZA’s economic team
The head of said effort is Giannis Dragasakis, who is responsible for forming the whole of the party’s fiscal program. He has studied Political and Economic Sciences in Athens and London, with a Masters in Economics from the London School of Economics.
Giorgos Stathakis is SYRIZA’s discourser with foreign fund and media representatives.
Euclidis Tsakalotos is one of the people on the tip of the spear for SYRIZA, and part of the economist team of the party.
Giannis Varoufakis is perhaps the most popular and well-known of economists of the party. As he, himself, has admitted, if it wasn’t for the crisis, he would be unknown, focusing on his research on game theory and the economy.
