London-based macro-economist Ann Pettifor will speak on this topic at Wesley Church, 75 Taranaki Street, Wellington, on Tuesday 20 September at 5:30pm. Ann is a member of the Green New Deal Group, which drew inspiration from the tone of President Roosevelt’s comprehensive response to the Great Depression to propose a modernised version. The ‘Green New Deal’ is designed to power a renewables revolution, create thousands of green-collar jobs and rein in the distorting power of the finance sector while making more low-cost capital available for pressing priorities.
Ann Pettifor is a sovereign debt expert, with a distinguished international reputation as a macro-economist and commentator on economic policy. Her book “The Coming First-world Debt Crisis” predated the GFC by a year. She is the Director of Policy Research in Macro-Economics (PRIME), and a fellow of the NewEconomy Foundation.
