Long-term trends in the World economy: The gender dimension
Abstract This paper is concerned with exploring some of the gender implications of certain long term trends which have dominated the world economy in the post World War II period. It analyzes how these trends affect men and women, and to what extent if any, they are in turn affected by gender. The paper concentrates on the following trends: - unprecedented growth of the world economy between 1950 and 1973 (the Golden Age); - a sharp trend decline in world economic growth since 1973; - deindustrialization of the older industrial countries; - "the new technological paradigm," that is, the information and communications technology revolution; - the industrial revolution of the third world and its interruption in the 1980s in the Latin American and African countries and its continuation in Asia.
