Dr Simon Mouatt

Associate Professor Emeritus

Simon Mouatt


Simon has worked in Higher Education for the last 24 years, at Southampton Solent University, City University and (now) Chichester University respectively. He is a keen teacher, and active researcher, in the field of economics, politics and philosophy – with particular specialisms in heterodox economic thought, global political economy and monetary economics.

He has a PhD in monetary economics, that synthesised and applied the macroeconomic models of Keynes and Marx (examined by UCL Professor Victoria Chick). The thesis challenged the (current) financialisation school in respect of the drivers of economic crises.

He has a passion for systemic thinking on the capitalist mode of production and is fully committed to pluralist inter-disciplinary research. He has several years of post-graduate research supervision experience, engages with the development of research communities and is a regular attendee of (internal and external) university research seminars.

Simon currently serves as the coordinator for the Association for Heterodox Economics, an international network of academics that utilise non-mainstream methodologies in their research.

He is particularly keen to contribute towards the development of the research community within the Business School, and the facilitation of collaborative work.
