Feminist Economics and Functional Finance : A Social Provisioning Approach - (Paperback)
about this item
This path breaking new book builds on theories of social provisioning and functional finance to provide a new framework for feminist economics, while at the same time providing a brand new gender analysis of central current economic issues and policies, focusing on the USA, but also considering the global economy and the ongoing financial crisis.
Zdravka Todorova demonstrates that all economic issues have gender dimensions and uses conventional ideas about money and government finance to show how economic theory itself is also intrinsically gendered. The result is an important new blend of ideas from Feminist and Post-Keynesian economics, two schools of thought that have previously been united only in passing.
