This volume presents a comprehensive analysis of the linkages between inequality, development, and growth from a feminist economics perspective. More specifically, it examines connections between intergroup inequality and macroeconomic 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 macroeconomic policies and economic growth on inequalities in material resources and well-being, as well as the effects of inequality on economic growth.

The volume offers specific explanations for how the macroeconomy 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 Economics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Drawing on feminist economics perspective, this book seeks to put the issue of inequality front and center in the analysis of economic growth and development. Adopting the capabilities approach of defining development as the advancement of human well being, the studies in this edited volume explore a wide range of ways to evaluate whether growth has enhanced shared human development or has merely enhanced pre-existing pockets of privilege. The book revisits the question of whether gender disparities impact growth with updated data. More importantly it also provides many fresh perspectives on the links between growth and inequality...Though in an environment where recognizing the problems withunrestricted faith on markets continues to be a hard sell despite the recent global recession, this book offers a very valuable and updated critique."-Ramya M. Vijaya
