A biographical dictionary of women economists by Mary Ann Dimand( )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women's analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese Russian, and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michele Pujol, a pioneer in the field."--Jacket

Women of value : feminist essays on the history of women in economics( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women economists rarely feature in most textbooks on the history of economic thought before 1960, despite the many articles and theses produced by them in the period. Why is their work so little studied? What did they write about? Who listened to them, supported them or hindered them? Women of Value seeks to better understand the lives and work of the women who helped to build the economics profession. A number of these papers focus on the sociology of the economics discipline including the failure to cite the work of women economists, graduate work by women and the personal networks among women economists in the pre-war period. It also includes a personal memoir of the experience of one female graduate student studying in the 1930s. Later papers focus on specific women economists including Jane Marcet, Harriet Martineau, Harriet Taylor, Barbara Bodichon, Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Mary Paley Marshall. The final chapter in the book looks at two studies of the role of women in industry carried out in the early twentieth century. Women of Value reassesses the role of women economists by using biographical research to augment the standard tools of historical and bibliographical work. Combining intellectual rigour with biographical insights into the lives and experience of many determined and courageous women economists, this volume will be welcomed by historians of economic thought, feminist economists and all those with an interest in women's history

Do We Still Need a Basic Income Guarantee in Canada?( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost forty years ago, Canada experimented with Basic Income Guarantee (B.I.G.) in a field experiment in Manitoba called Mincome. That project ended and, despite periodic revivals of interest over the years, no general programme was introduced in Canada. Now, the idea has re-emerged with new vigour; jurisdictions around the world are introducing experiments and pilot projects
Basic income for Canadians : the key to a healthier, happier, more secure life for all by Evelyn L Forget( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadian social programs were designed for a world in which most people graduated from high school, then found a permanent job with benefits that, barring unforeseen accidents, they would hold until they retired with a pension - all under the benevolent eye of their workplace union. In the last forty years, however, the labour market has fundamentally changed. Good, full-time jobs have been replaced by part-time or temporary work that pays lower wages, offers fewer benefits and rarely comes with union support. Economic insecurity is now a feature of the lives for large numbers of people. Even advanced degrees do not guarantee young workers stable, well-paying jobs. This new situation has given new life to an old idea - basic income. This book explores this idea from a Canadian perspective. Basic income was tested in Manitoba in the 1970s. This and other experiments with basic income have shown that it improves family and community health and well-being, leads to a healthier attachment to the labour market, improves financial resilience and encourages education and training. Author Evelyn L. Forget discusses how Canada would set a basic income, what it would accomplish, how it could be implemented, whether Canadians can afford it and how it would fit into the overall social policy landscape."--

Conversations on the nature of political economy by Jane Marcet( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jane Marcet is not writing for the working classes, but for women and men of the educated classes of the nineteenth century. She draws her principles and materials from the writings of the great masters who have written about political economy, particularly Adam Smith, Th omas Robert Malthus, Jean-Baptise Say, Jean Charles Luonard de Sismondi, and David Ricardo. Marcet consolidates the ideas of bankers as well as professional political economists. She makes their ideas accessible, not only to the young people she identifi es as her audience in the book's preface, but also to the middle classes--political actors and business people. She challenges the English classical school to take seriously the ideas of continental economists by inserting those ideas into a popular book. Marcet maintains distance from some of the central tenets of classical economics, but engages in conversation with its masters. Sometimes she accepts criticism of their ideas, but at other times she keeps her own counsel. The ideas of the masters will be immediately identifi able to those for whom political economy is not new, although a few of their more abstruse questions and controversies have been omitted. When the soundness of a doctrine appears well established, Marcet presents it conscientiously. Evelyn L. Forget's well written introduction describes the life and background of the author as well as the book's history, bringing this timeless classic into the twenty- first century."--Provided by publisher

Development and validation of a predictive model for all-cause hospital readmissions in Winnipeg, Canada( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Objective: A number of predictive models have been developed to identify patients at risk of hospital readmission. Most of these have focused on readmission within 30 days of discharge. We used population-based health administrative data to develop a predictive model for hospital readmission within 12 months of discharge in Winnipeg, Canada. Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study with derivation and validation data sets. Multivariable logistic regression analyses were performed and factors significantly associated with readmission were selected to construct a risk scoring tool. Results: Several variables were identified that predicted readmission (i.e. older age, male, at least one hospital admission in the previous two years, an emergent (index) hospital admission, Charlson comorbidity score >0 and length of stay). Discrimination power was acceptable (C statistic =0.701). At a median risk score threshold, the sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were 45.5%, 79%, 68.8% and 58.6%. Conclusions: This predictive model demonstrated that hospital readmission within 12 months of discharge can be reasonably well predicted based on administrative data. It will help health care providers target interventions to prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions
