Announced: Ann Pettifor
Posted on the 7th February 2017 by Orsola Maria
We are proud to announce that Ann Pettifor, Director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics at PRIME Economics, will speak at the Warwick Economics Summit 2017.
Ann Pettifor is a UK-based economist, director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME), honorary research fellow at the Political Economy Research Centre at City University, London (CITYPERC), and a fellow of the New Economics Foundation, London. She is also executive director of the consultancy Advocacy International, which advises governments and organisations on international finance and sustainable development.
Ms. Pettifor is accredited as one of the few economists to have correctly predicted the 2008 Financial Crisis in several publications including "Coming soon: The new poor”. Her work and writing have concentrated on the international financial architecture, the sovereign debts of the poorest countries, and the rise in the sovereign, corporate, and private debt in the OECD economies.
Her latest book, “Just Money: how society can break the despotic power of finance” was published by Commonwealth in 2014. Ms. Pettifor is well known for her leadership of an organisation Jubilee 2000, that placed the debts of the poorest countries on the global political agenda and brought about both substantial debt cancellation and radical policy changes at national and international levels. In 2006, Palgrave published her book “The coming first world debt crisis”. In 2008, she co-authored “The Green New Deal”. In 2010, Ms. Pettifor co-authored an essay with Professor Victoria Chick: “The economic consequences of Mr. Osborne.”
