Jayne Flanagan

Jayne Flanagan is a co-director of the recently established Modern Money Australia (MMA) NSW chapter. MMA is volunteer-run organisation that aims to promote a greater public understanding of Modern Monetary Theory with the aim of achieving social, environmental and economic justice.

Jayne is currently a postgraduate student in public health at the University of New South Wales, having worked as an occupational therapist in the public health system for many years. The disenchantment arising from bearing witness to the destruction of a fair and equitable public health system under a regime of austerity, combined with Jayne’s increasing understanding of Modern Monetary Theory has prompted her to become involved in pushing for progressive change.
