Political economist Ann Pettifor demystifies history’s most misunderstood invention: the money system. Arguing that democracies can reclaim control over money production, Pettifor sets out the possibility of linking the money in our pockets (or on our smartphones) to the change we want to see in the world around us.

Ann Pettifor (@AnnPettifor) is a political economist with a focus on finance and sovereign debt. She is the Director of PRIME (Policy Research in Macroeconomics), an honorary research fellow at City University, a fellow of the New Economics Foundation, and has an honorary doctorate from Newcastle University. She is the author of The Real World Economic Outlook and The Coming First World Debt Crisis, and co-authored The Green New Deal and The Economic Consequences of Mr Osborne.

The Department of Economics at LSE (@LSEEcon) is one of the largest economics departments in the world. Its size ensures that all areas of economics are strongly represented in both research and teaching.

The Centre For Macroeconomics (@CFMUK) brings together world-class experts to carry out pioneering research on the global economic crisis and to help design policies that alleviate it.
