The strategic silence : gender and economic policy( Book )

13 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most treatments of economic change harbour a conceptual silence: the refusal to recognise that global restructuring is occurring on a gendered terrain. This book's unique contribution to the literature on restructuring and adjustment lies in its application of feminist scholarship to macroeconomics. The contributors focus on these conceptual silences, examining macroeconomic methods and policies in order to propose new research strategies to deliver a more gender-aware economics

Rethinking restructuring : gender and change in Canada( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the past decade Canadian policy-makers have been forced to re-examine familiar forms of government and established programs in the face of growing budget deficits, economic instability, and a rapidly changing global economy. This collection of eighteen original essays presents a critical exploration of the question of political and economic restructuring from the vantage point of gender." "The authors argue that the present shift in the global order is revealing the contradictory effects of what is a dual process of both gender erosion and intensification. With the convergence of male and female job experiences in polarized labour markets, gender appears to be less important in understanding the global political economy; at the same time, gender becomes more of a determining factor in the transformation of politics and markets owing to the changing role of women as workers, care givers, and consumers." "The decline of the Keynesian welfare state has made claims-based politics less viable as a site of struggle for the women's movement. Not only has claims-based politics been replaced by a trend towards community and individual reliance, the women's movement itself has undergone a transformation that precludes a unitary, homogenous approach to policy and politics."--Jacket
Questioning financial governance from a feminist perspective( Book )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Questioning Financial Governance from a Feminist Perspective brings together feminist economists and feminist political economists from different countries located in North America and Europe to analyze the 'strategic silence' about gender in fiscal and monetary policy, and financial regulation. This silence reflects a set of assumptions that the key instruments of financial governance are gender-neutral. This often masks the ways in which financial governance operates to the disadvantage of women and reinforces gender inequality. This book examines both the transformations in the governance of finance that predate the financial crisis, as well as some dimension of the crisis itself. The transformations increasingly involved private as well as public forms of power, along with institutions of state and civil society, operating at the local, national, regional and global levels. An important aspect of these transformations has been the creation of policy rules (often enacted in laws) that limit the discretion of national policy makers with respect to fiscal, monetary, and financial sector policies. These policy rules tend to have inscribed in them a series of biases that have gender (as well as class and race-based) outcomes. The biases identified by the authors in the various chapters are the deflationary bias, male breadwinner bias, and commodification bias, adding two new biases: risk bias and creditor bias. The originality of the book is that its primary focus is on macroeconomic policies (fiscal and monetary) and financial governance from a feminist perspective with a focus on the gross domestic product and its fluctuations and growth, paid employment and inflation, the budget surplus/deficit, levels of government expenditure and tax revenue, and supply of money. The central findings are that the key instruments of financial governance are not gender neutral. Each chapter considers examples of financial governance, and how it relates to the gender order, including divisions of labour, and relations of power and privilege"

Unpaid work and macroeconomics : new discussions, new tools for action by Isabella Bakker( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policy on unpaid work usually focuses on how more equitable distribution between women and men can be achieved or how unpaid work can be recognized through social and economic instruments. This paper focuses on a third aspect: the links between unpaid work and the macro-economy and what the consequences of these links are for policy makers. Chapter 1 describes the implicit models of the macro-economy and of the family that inform policy development in Canada. Chapter 2 presents 8 specific macro-economic concerns. Each macro issue is considered from 3 vantage points: the conceptual issues and empirical data which inform the macro concern; the policy implications of linking the particular macro issue to unpaid work; identification of research gaps. The 8 areas considered are macro stability; cyclicity and household labour; adjustment and restructuring packages; growth; saving and investment; trade; social policy and human resources; the contribution/resource gap; policy transparency, accountability and a greater voice
