Women in the economy: Global Growth Generators

16.02.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

The relevance of gender to economic growth as a mainstream research question is a relatively new field. There is an impressive and growing body of literature on women and the economy most notably from global institutions such as the IMF, the OECD, the United Nations and the World Bank. In 2015, the G20 has also included women as a driver of growth as part of its overall progress agenda. Despite this, most of the work produced by leading economists on global growth and, in particular, on whether we face a future of secular stagnation, still concentrates on monetary and fiscal policy responses. In this report, the global economics team at Citi group analyses the dynamics of global female labour force participation. The authors of this report also point out that much work currently done in the informal economy cannot be ignored and does not get adequately captured in conventional economic measurements.
