About Jasper Blom

Jasper Blom is a political economist at the University of Amsterdam specialising in global financial governance.

His last policy job was as director of Bureau de Helling, the think tank of the Dutch Green party. He edited De Kredietcrisis: een politiek-economisch perspectief (Amsterdam University Press, 2010) and was co-editor with Underhill and Mügge of Global Financial Integration Thirty Years On: From reform to crisis (Cambridge University Press, 2010) and regularly contributes to the public debate on topics related political economy and green politics.
