Who is Noreena Hertz?

Noreena Hertz is an English author, economist and broadcaster and currently Professor at the Centre for the Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty at University College London. In 2001 The Observer newspaper dubbed her "one of the world's leading young thinkers" and Vogue magazine described her as "one of the most inspiring women in the world.". In September 2013 Hertz was featured on the cover of Newsweek Magazine. Describing herself as "a campaigning academic", critics have called her "a do-gooder who moves like a grasshopper from one high-profile good cause to another." She has been called the 'Nigella Lawson of economics' by the UK media,"because she combines striking beauty with a formidable mind" and the 'self-appointed It girl of anti-globalisation.' Fast Company magazine has named her "one of the most influential economists on the international stage" and observed: "For more than two decades [her] economic predictions have been accurate and ahead of the curve."

Hertz's books are published in 17 languages.
