Dr Anne Paess

Lecturer in Economics

Plymouth Business School (Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Business)



I am a theoretical economist specialising in Macroeconomics and Central Banking. I am multilingual.
I am the Programme Manager for BSc (Hons) Economics.
In 2011-2012 I worked as a Leading Statistician at the Department of National, Financial, and Environmental Accounts at the National Statistical Institution in Estonia. I calculated the FISIM (Financial Intermediation Services Indirectly Measured) component of GDP and compiled Financial and Non-Financial Accounts for the financial sector of the economy. This experience fuelled my interest in the interconnectedness of monetary policy, the financial sector, and the macroeconomy.
