Summary
This work bridges a critical gap in the social sciences. It brings identity and norms to economics. People's notions of what is proper, and what is forbidden, and for whom, are fundamental to how hard they work, and how they learn, spend, and save.
Contents
Introduction -- Identity economics -- Identity and norms in utility -- Where we fit into today's economics -- Identity and the economics of organizations -- Identity and the economics of education -- Gender and work -- Race and minority poverty -- Identity economics and economic methodology -- Conclusion, and five ways identity changes economics.
