Yanis Varoufakis net worth

This must be the worst time to be the Finance Minister of Greece but a great time to be an economist. Thankfully Yanis Varoufakis is both so he’s probably the right guy to steer Greece from the financial mess it finds itself in. Varoufakis is the voice and face of the Greece's economic situation today following the January 2015 Greek elections. He’s a guarded man so there’s not much info on the Yanis Varoufakis net worth but the net’s full of quotes from this most modern of politicians.

The man himself

He’s described as “little crazy, bold and willing to negotiate”, all of which are skills he’ll need to rebuild the nation’s finances. Now that the headlines about possible write-offs of Greece’s €315bn foreign debt have gone away, Varoufakis has begun working on ways to replace the European rescue loans which continue to cloud his nation in bad publicity.


This is a man who was educated in England. He attended the University of Essex and the University of Birmingham. We're not sure if either of these establishments have given him the necessary tools for the mammoth task ahead of rebuilding the country's financial wellbeing. Only time will tell.


Yanis Varoufakis is not a popular man among his peers in the Eurozone. In a 2015 meeting of Eurozone finance ministers, the other 18 ministers rounded on Varoufakis calling him a "gambler" so the word is that he will now take a backseat in Greece's bail-out negotiations.

Greek minimum wage

Although there’s no definite Yanis Varoufakis net worth figure, you can bet that Greece’s Minister for Finance is earning way more than the €683.76 a month minimum earnings available to workers in his nation.
