Pavlina Tcherneva  

Associate Professor of Economics at Bard College; Research Scholar at Levy Economics Institute

Pavlina R. Tcherneva is an Associate Professor of Economics at Bard College and a Research Scholar at the Levy Economics Institute, NY. She specializes in Modern Monetary Theory and public policy.

Her book, "The Case for a Job Guarantee," is the ultimate guide to the benefits of one of the most transformative public policies being discussed today. She has collaborated with policy makers from the US and abroad on designing and evaluating employment programs. Her early work assessed Argentina’s adoption of a large-scale job creation proposal she had developed with colleagues in the United States. She also worked with the Sanders 2016 Presidential campaign after her research on inequality had garnered national attention.

Tcherneva frequently speaks at Central Banks on Modern Monetary Theory and macro-economic stabilization policies. Her current research evaluates the impact of unemployment on growth, income inequality, and public health. Tcherneva’s first book Full Employment and Price Stability (2004) is a rare collection of writings on employment and inflation by Nobel Prize winning economist William Vickrey, adapted for the modern day.
