Valerie Cerra, Assistant Director, Fiscal Affairs Department, IMF
Markus Eller, Senior Economist, Joint Vienna Institute
In this webinar, Valerie Cerra from the IMF will present the book “How to Achieve Inclusive Growth”, co-edited with Barry Eichengreen, Asmaa El-Ganainy, and Martin Schindler and recently published by Oxford University Press. The book analyses the paramount economic, social, and environmental policy challenges of our day. It lays out a comprehensive and integrated framework for designing policies to combat economic disparities for current and future generations across the globe. Moreover, it draws on the expertise of top economists from around the world and on the policy experience of experts from leading international institutions. Last but not least, it provides additional resources for policymakers to help them take next steps and tailor solutions to their specific conditions and needs.

She has been involved in policy advice, lending, and capacity development in the IMF’s Western Hemisphere, African, European, and Asia and Pacific departments, and the IMF Institute. She obtained undergraduate degrees in finance and engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, a PhD in Economics from the University of Washington, and is a Chartered Financial Analyst.
