Gender, Economics, and the IMF

Marking Women’s History Month (observed in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, annually in March and in Canada, annually in October), IMF showcased work on the intersection between gender, economics, and the work of the IMF.

What work does IMF do on gender? The IMF offers a web portal to answer this very question.

From videos to podcasts, publications to speeches, data visualizations to infographics, this resource showcases the work of IMF, particularly in gender and economics.

Looking for IMF publications on gender and economics? Check out the IMF eLibrary resource guide, regularly updated, for a comprehensive guide to the work of the organization on this topic.

The IMF and Gender page is available here: https://www.imf.org/external/themes/gender/

The gender resource guide at the IMF eLibrary is available to WTO staff and WTO Library patrons here: https://www.elibrary.imf.org/page/gender

William Nordhaus and Paul Romer awarded Nobel Prize for economics

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2018 Nobel Memorial Prize for Economics to American economists William Nordhaus and Paul Romer, in recognition of their bodies of research in integrating into economic analysis consideration of issues of climate change and technological innovation.

“William D. Nordhaus and Paul M. Romer have designed methods for addressing some of our time’s most basic and pressing questions about how we create long-term sustained and sustainable economic growth,” writes the press release from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. “At its heart, economics deals with the management of scarce resources. … This year’s Laureates… have significantly broadened the scope of economic analysis by constructing models that explain how the market economy interacts with nature and knowledge.”

Nordhaus, currently Sterling Professor of Economics at Yale University, is best known and was recognized for his work on economic modeling and climate change, specifically “for integrating climate change into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”

Romer, formerly Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the World Bank and professor of economics at the Stern School of Business at New York University, was recognized specifically “for integrating technological innovations into long-run macroeconomic analysis.”

More information on the 2018 award decision can be found in the press release here: https://www.nobelprize.org/uploads/2018/10/press-economicsciences2018.pdf

For works by Nordhaus or Romer in the WTO Library’s collection, check out the Library catalogue¬†or follow one of these links works by these two economists:
