This site was launched in January 2015 and will focus on Irish, European and international economics and politics. All articles and interviews are written by myself, Emma Clancy, unless stated otherwise.
I am an economist specialising in tax justice and illicit financial flows; Eurozone economic policy; and feminist economics. I work as a policy advisor for the European United Left (GUE/NGL) in the European Parliament on the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee and the TAX3 special committee on tax evasion, tax avoidance and money-laundering (and previously for the Panama Papers Committee of Inquiry for the duration of its mandate).
Previously I was a Sydney-based industrial officer for the National Tertiary Education Union, representing the union in industrial disputes and at the Australian industrial relations tribunal, the Fair Work Commission.
I obtained an LLB and BA (Politics and International Studies) from Murdoch University, Australia, and am currently completing an MSc in Finance at the University of London, SOAS.
All views are expressed here in a personal capacity. As well as new articles written after the blog was launched, the site also contains a selection of pre-2015 articles and interviews.
