Ann Pettifor

Director of PRIME Policy Research in Macroeconomics

I'm Ann Pettifor - new economist, director of Advocacy International, PRIME Economics, analyst of the global financial system (, and a co-author of the Green New Deal.

I predicted an Anglo-American debt-deflationary crisis back in 2003, and am known for my work on sovereign debt and international finance, including co-founding the Jubilee 2000 (Drop the Debt) campaign.

My books include Real World Economic Outlook - the legacy of globalization, debt and deflation, and The Coming First World Debt Crisis, both published by Palgrave Macmillan.

I'm currently a fellow of the new economics foundation and Executive Director of Advocacy International and PRIME (Policy Research in Macroeconomics).
