Exploring the Present Through the Past
Claudia Goldin is one of the worldâ€™s leading economists and economic historians, and has made a series of outstanding and original contributions particularly to the cliometric (or â€˜The New Economic Historyâ€™) literature. In this interview, Professor Goldin discusses with Brian Snowdon (who first provides a background introduction) several important issues relating to her research on economic history and cliometrics, the economics of slavery, US economic history, corruption in America, the role of human capital and education in US economic development, wage inequality, female labour force participation and the 'Quiet Revolution', the influence of the contraceptive pill, women's surnames, the reversal of the college gender gap, and women in the economics profession.
