Davies, Peter, Mangan, Jean and Telhaj, Shqiponje (2005) Bold, reckless and adaptive? Explaining gender difference in economic thinking and attitudes. British education research journal, 31 (1). pp. 29-48. ISSN 0141-1926
In the first half of this paper we develop a perspective on the role of 'boldness' in explaining gender differences in thinking and attitudes. We apply this analysis to evidence from Australia, the USA and the UK in relation to economics at school and university levels. In the second half we present the results of a study of over 1000 15-17-year-olds in UK secondary schools. On the basis of the gender differences revealed in these data and our preceding analysis we offer some implications for learning and teaching.
