Kurzbeschreibung

There were only a few women economists who made it to the surface and whose voices were heard in the history of economic thought of Adam Smith, David Ricardo, John Maynard Keynes, and Milton Friedman - right? Wrong!

In this book, distinguished economist Edith Kuiper shows us that the history of economic thought is just that, a his-story, by telling the herstory of economic thought from the perspective of women economic writers and economists. Although some of these women were well known in their time, they were excluded from most of academic economics, and, over the past centuries, their work has been neglected, forgotten, and thus become invisible. Edith Kuiper introduces the reader to an amazing crowd of female pioneers and reveals how their insights are invaluable to understanding areas of economics ranging from production, work, and the economics of the household, to income and wealth distribution, consumption, public policy, and much more.

This pathbreaking book presents a whole new perspective on the development of economic thought. It will be essential reading for all students and scholars of the history of economic thought and feminist economics.

"This excellent detective work solves a kind of murder mystery: it reveals the underappreciated heroines of a remarkably longstanding effort to improve the scope of economic theory."

"History is written by the victors, and for too long economics has been dominated by old white men. This pioneering book denounces the male bias in economics and sets the record straight. Edith Kuiper shows that proper consideration for women's many contributions to economic thinking opens up economics to badly needed new ideas and perspectives. We need less history and more herstory."
