Before being elected as an MEP Molly worked as an economist, most recently in the post of Professor of Green Economics at Roehampton University. Molly believes many environmental and social problems have their origin in the way our economy is organised. As a Green economist she seeks to build an economy based around local production for the common good rather than global trade for profit.
Molly is a member of the Parliament’s Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee and has worked specifically on tax policy; she has also been a member of a special committee on tax (TAXE) and the Panama papers committee of inquiry (PANA) investigating money laundering, tax avoidance and tax evasion. In both committees Molly has been pushing for measures to tackle tax dodging by corporations and wealthy elites. More about Molly’s work on tax justice.
