Critical macroeconomics and finance

Globalised finance is the dominant force in modern capitalism, affecting both high-income and developing countries. We are working towards a critical re-articulation of the role of finance and money in economic theory and practice. Our approach can best be characterised as the ‘political economy of finance’. Our research encompasses macroeconomics, finance and accumulation.
