IEA: Gender quotas – the left’s version of trickle-down economics?

An excellent new piece by Kristian Niemietz of the Institute of Economic Affairs:

The IEA remains the only think tank in the UK prepared to give any exposure to this issue. We were grateful to have a blog piece on this issue published by them last year (link below) and I later gave a well-received presentation to a capacity audience at the IEA.

  1. Thanks for your emails, Mike.

    For info in case you missed it, the treasurer of UKIP was on Radio 4 a few minutes ago talking about quotas for women on boards. He sounded very level headed about it and made the point that there are more women in the caring professions than men but that didn’t mean there should be quotas there for men.
