UMass Economics in the News

People often look at the gender pay gap in simplistic terms, says Nancy Folbre, professor emerita of economics. She says they apply incomplete explanations, like placing blame all on employers for discriminating against women, or assuming that all women have different priorities than men. (CNBC, 4/2/19)

Nancy Folbre, Professor Emerita of Economics, was among eight economists interviewed by CNBC for U.S. Equal Pay Day (Women had to work through April 2, 2019, an additional three months, to equal men’s 2018 average annual earnings.) Other economists interviewed included Claudia Goldin (Harvard University), Heidi Hartmann (President of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research), and Gary Burtless (Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution).
