Ann Pettifor

Ann Pettifor is director of PRIME (Policy Research in Macroeconomics), a network of economists that promote Keynes’s monetary theory and policies, and that focus on the role of the finance sector in the economy. PRIME believes that conventional or ‘mainstream’ economic theory has proved of almost no relevance to the ongoing and chronic failure of the global economy and to the gravest threat facing us all: climate change.

She is also a fellow of the New Economics Foundation and the author of multiple books including The Case for the Green New Deal (2019) and The Production of Money (2017).
