Why Gender Matters in Economics
Eswaran, Mukesh. Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2014.
This textbook provides an economic look at issues confronting women throughout the world– including nonmarket scenarios, such as marriage and fertility choices, as well as market areas, pertaining to labor and credit markets and globalization. Eswaran examines the ways in which economic outcomes differ for women and men and explores the consequences of these differences in both market and nonmarket domains, including changes occurring as a result of women’s increased access to healthcare, education, and credit.
