A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

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.

She was a pupil of the Schwarzwaldschen Schulanstalten and the Privat-Mädchen-Obergymnasium of the organization for women’s development. Lieser submitted her doctorate to the Political Science Department in April 1920. Her thesis bears the title ‘Währungspolitische Literatur der österreichischen Bankozettelperiode’ (monetary policy writings of the Austrian Bankozettelperiode). The thesis was supervised by Ludwig Edler von Mises and Othmar Spann. Lieser starts out from the assumption that the Bankozettelperiode has a literature comparable with that of England at the beginning of the nineteenth century. The Austrian literature is, however, of inferior quality. In England a money theory developed due to the currency depreciation as a result of the coalition wars. In Austria such an economic theory was lacking, and was only developed in the 1870s. Lieser...
