Women & Gender: Economics and Finance

Siddhartha Sarkar (Author)

A substantial amount of literature suggests that women differ from men in various financial matters. When it comes to dealing with money and finance, women are on average still more inexperienced compared to men. Since they earn less in most cases and live longer, they are more reluctant to take losses and eager to save costs. Women tend to integrate their values into their financial plan, a fact that makes socially responsible investments more attractive to them.
