, Accuracy in Academia, 2 Comments

University of Michigan professor Betsey Stevenson presented the argument that there are too many “male-dominated” textbooks in economics. Her presentation was at the American Economic Association, which is an association of academic economists.

She said that 77% of the top eight-leading economic textbooks are written by males and that this ratio needs to change in order to attract the student body that economists want.
