Margaret Atwood commented that her book, Who Cooked Adam
Smith’s Dinner? a "Smart, funny, readable book on economics,
money and women". It was named one of The Guardian's Books of the
year in 2015 and Somer completely agrees. This one hooked Somer
quickly and engaged her on so many levels. In this discussion with
Katrine and Somer they discuss the book and the the many economic
layers that go into our daily life even the simple task of making
dinner and who is making that dinner.
Katrine’s second book "Mother of Invention: How Good Ideas Get Ignored in An Economy Built For Men" became an instant bestseller in Sweden in 2020. It will be published in the UK, US, Canada, South Korea and Italy in 2021.
Katrine works for Dagens Nyheter, the largest broadsheet newspaper in Sweden. As a financial journalist she has interviewed many of the world’s most influential economic thinkers like Nouriel Roubini and Nassim Taleb. Some of her broadcast interviews have been viewed more than a million times by international audiences on YouTube. She is also an international keynote speaker on the economic impact of women: with particular focus on how inclusion of women is the missing key to innovation for modern business.
“I mean, the reason why women earn less than men, is has primarily to do with the fact that women do more of this unpaid care work, whether that's, you know, in its unpaid form, or the fact that women tend to specialized in, in the care sector in many economies, which is paid less than many other comparable jobs, because care used to be something that women were just expected to do for free.” - Katrine Marçal
