Dame Nemat Talaat "Minouche" Shafik, DBE (نعمت شفيق) is a British-American economist.
Minouche Shafik was the youngest vice-president in the history of the World Bank where she worked for 15 years, returning to the UK in 2004 as the UK Permanent Secretary of the Department for International Development. In 2011 she became Deputy Managing Director of the IMF and from 2014-2017 was Deputy Governor of the Bank of England.
Shafik has held academic appointments at the Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania and the Economics Department at Georgetown University. She is an Agenda Contributor at the World Economic Forum.
In a 2019 op-ed, she called for a new social contract which might have to provide a minimum income for all, but where "aging populations may have to commit to working longer — with retirement ages pegged to life expectancy — and demanding less medicalized health care at the end of life." The economy would have to be redone, with "massive investments in green technologies to transform cities, transportation, and energy systems." 
In 2022 she was appointed a trustee of the Gates Foundation.
Shafik attended the Bilderberg for the first time in 2019.
