Kimball and unnamed coauthor examine male bias in economics

a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"How big is the sexism problem in economics? This article’s co-author is anonymous because of it" - Quartz. 01/06/2015.

A recent list of the 25 most influential economists includes not one woman. Miles Kimball and his anonymous female economist co-author look at why women are at such a disadvantage in the field of economics and how greater gender equality would benefit the field. They say: "Many male economists underestimate the headwinds women face in economics, but they exist at every stage of a woman’s career."
