Daniel Stempel and Ulrike Neyer analyse the effects of gender discrimination on macroeconomic outcomes. Their study suggests that if there were no gender discrimination, adverse economic shocks like the COVID-19 pandemic would be less detrimental to economic activity. Additional consequences of gender discrimination come via monetary policy: central bank reactions to the crisis end up increasing discriminatory wage gaps and are less effective at stabilising the economy.
