This week on a crossover episode of What’s at Stake and the Macrocast, host Ylan Mui is joined by Betsey Stevenson, economics professor at the University of Michigan, to discuss the real-world impacts of Claudia Goldin’s work. This October, Goldin became the first solo woman to win the Nobel Prize in Economics for her work on women’s labor market outcomes and the gender pay gap. Goldin was Stevenson’s mentor and professor at Harvard, and Stevenson provides incredible insights into Goldin’s groundbreaking research.
A former member of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama and former Chief Economist of the U.S. Department of Labor, Stevenson herself is a leading expert on women’s labor market experiences and the economic forces shaping the modern family. Tune in to hear an illuminating conversation about the importance of flexibility in the workplace, “greedy” jobs, and more.
