Laurie headshot oD

I’m an economics writer and commentator based in Edinburgh. I am currently economics editor at openDemocracy, and a trustee of the Finance Innovation Lab. I am also a fellow at a number of great organisations: the UCL Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose, New Economics Foundation, Wellbeing Economy Alliance and The Democracy Collaborative. I am also a member of North Ayrshire Council’s Community Wealth Building Expert Panel.

On this site you can find all my writing, research and publications from recent years, as well as my occasional musings on economics, politics, technology – and whatever else captures my attention.
