Daniela Gabor is Professor of Economics and Macrofinance at UWE Bristol. Her research covers shadow banking activities and their implications for financial regulation, central banking and monetary theory, and in 2016 she was invited as an expert witness to the European Parliament’s public hearing on the Capital Markets Union. She also writes on how transnational banks get involved with international economic policy deliberations, and on the conditions the International Monetary Fund (IMF) imposes on the countries it lends to. Daniela works closely with a range of policy activists, seeking to bring a progressive economic perspective into ongoing policy debates on macroeconomic governance. She is finishing a book on Shadow Money: Money and Power in the Age of Financial Globalisation. She tweets @DanielaGabor and blogs at criticalfinance.org.
