Dr Sue Himmelweit

What was the nature of their innovation and how did it contribute to humankind? Dr Sue Himmelweit is a British economist who has assiduously contributed to develop (at the theoretical and practical level) debate on inequalities within households, the economics of caring, feminist economics and the gender implications of economic policy. Himmelweit’s most innovative discussion is on the economics of caring, especially the macroeconomics of caring. Her work has led her to be the co-founder of the Women's Budget Group, a think tank that monitors, comments and advises on the gender implications of the government's social and economic policies.

Points

Working and developing the macroeconomics of caring.

I do hope that part of her caring programme is about providing equality of opportunity to work and reside in the most suitable locations. Such a possibility can be introduced by land value taxation, as proposed by Henry George as a single tax.
