An exploration of the cliometric relationship between gender equality and economic growth

Perrin, Faustine LU (2015) In Economics and Business Review 15(1). p.34-54
Abstract
This paper develops the foundations and the implications of the mechanisms proposed as possible triggers for the demographic transition and the process of socio-economic development. In particular it examines the role played by gender equality and its significance for the understanding of the development process which allowed economies to move out of a long period of stagnation into a state of sustainable economic growth. Based on a renewed cliometric approach, the analysis suggests that the rise in gender equality was a key trigger for the transition to modern growth.
