In this new report, the authors try to get a grip on what it takes for the economics profession to treat the climate crisis like the crisis it is. For that, we interviewed nine leading economists – all coming from different geographies and exposing different levels of optimism about the changes that are possible. They include Jayati Ghosh (Jawaharlal Nehru University), Yanis Varoufakis (Hellenic Parliament), Dimitri Zenghelis (LSE Grantham Research Institute), Jane Kabubo-Mariara (University of Nairobi), David Colander (Middlebury College), Penny Mealy (INET Oxford), Michael Jacobs (University of Sheffield), Claudia Kemfert (German Institute for Economic Research) and Grieve Chelwa (University of Cape Town).
