About the speaker:

Her book “Can’t we just print more money” is a Sunday Times Bestseller and has made understanding the UK Economy more accessible for readers from school children to pensioners.

The book has also been made into a GCSE teaching resource and proceeds from the book go towards the Bank of England’s educational programme in schools.
