A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

Elgar original reference

Edited by Robert W. Dimand, Mary Ann Dimand and Evelyn L. Forget

This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women’s analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michèle Pujol, a pioneer in the field.

201 Professor for Political Economy and she continued to be an inspiring teacher to new generations of students until her retirement in 1981. She passed away in 1986. She didn’t marry and didn’t have any children. Goudi was not a prolific writer; her publications nevertheless were of high quality. She worked on monetary theory and policy and on questions of macroeconomic management. As an economist close to Professor Zolotas she must be credited with sound advice that kept the inflation rate as low as 2 per cent per year between 1955 and 1970, when the rate of growth of GNP was 6.2 per cent per year for the same period. She was not, however, a monetarist and allowed psychological and behavioural explanations into her analysis of inflation. It must be stressed that for long periods of time, especially between the years 1966 and 1980, Goudi taught a wide range of courses in most subfields of economics at the University of Athens, a fact that partly explains her low publication record.
