Margrit Kennedy is a German architect, professor, environmentalist, author and an advocate of complementary currencies and an interest- and inflation-free economy.

Kennedy holds a Masters Degree in Urban and Regional Planning and a Ph.D. in Public and International Affairs from the University of Pittsburgh, and has worked as an urban planner in Germany, Nigeria, Scotland and the United States. In 1991, she was appointed Professor of Ecological Building Technologies at the Department of Architecture, University of Hanover.

She has stated that her work on ecological architecture in 1982 led her to the discovery, that it is "virtually impossible to carry out sound ecological concepts on the scale required today, without fundamentally altering the present money system or creating new complementary currencies".

Her most famous book, Interest and Inflation Free Money, Creating an Exchange Medium that works for Everybody and Protects the Earth was originally published in 1987 and has been revised several times and translated into 22 languages.
