About this product
- DescriptionThis volume presents a comprehensive analysis of the linkages between inequality, development, and growth from a feminist ecomics perspective. More specifically, it examines connections between intergroup inequality and macroecomic outcomes, considering various channels through which gender, growth, and development interact. Using a range of analytical methods, country studies, and levels of aggregation, the contributors argue that inequalities based on gender, race, ethnicity, and class undermine the ability of people to provision and live fully to their capabilities. Authors examine the effect of macroecomic policies and ecomic growth on inequalities in material resources and well-being, as well as the effects of inequality on ecomic growth. The volume offers specific explanations for how the macroecomy can hinder the achievement of gender equality and in turn how gender relations in areas like education and wage gaps can have macro-level impacts. Finally, the volume offers a rich array of policy options for promoting gender equality as both an intrinsic goal and a step toward improving well-being and broadly-shared development. This book was published as a special issue of Feminist Ecomics.
