Isabella Weber

Isabella Weber is a Professor of Economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a leading voice on policy responses to inflation. Weber’s pioneering research has reshaped our understanding of sellers’ inflation and the role of price controls during economic shocks. Her pragmatic approach to these challenges has informed and influenced policy decisions in the United States, Germany, and beyond, providing new pathways for stabilizing economies without sacrificing democratic integrity or workers’ rights. Weber’s insights are crucial for navigating the complexities of contemporary economies and offer progressive alternatives that challenge conventional policy frameworks.

She is the 2024 Ellen Meiksins Wood Prize recipient and Lecturer, delivering remarks at Toronto Metropolitan University on May 30th, 2024.
