What role does gender play in relation to economic opportunities, activities, and rewards? The Economics of Gender, 3e offers a comprehensive, balanced, and up-to-date introduction to this important topic in labor economics. With a strong focus on US patterns, but utilizing an international comparative perspective, this text closely examines the evolution of these frameworks, and analyzes the ways in which they are impacted by race, ethnicity, and class. Real-life examples and anecdotes enliven the text as it encompasses crucial topics for a thorough understanding of the field, including the pros and cons of various policies, such as "comparable worth" and welfare programs. Helpful appendices provide additional information for readers who have little experience with economics, while simultaneously providing further detail for the economically sophisticated. Clear, readable, and provocative, The Economics of Gender, 3e is an essential resource for the growing number of courses on gender economics, labor economics, economic policy, and women's studies.
