Critical and Feminist Perspectives on Financial & Economic Crises
Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, James Heintz & Stephanie Seguino, eds. Critical and Feminist Perspectives on Financial & Economic Crises. Routledge, 2015.
The collection of international studies assembled here takes an innovative approach to analyzing a range of issues, from the subprime mortgage crisis to the gendered effects of austerity to the role of the International Monetary Fund in governing an unstable global economy. In so doing, it looks beyond causes and consequences and points to new directions for macroeconomic and financial policy.
