Theme: Gender and ICTs
Feminist economic concepts have many interfaces with moral economies that are primarily based on co-operation (instead of competition), social re-embedding and reciprocity. They are need-oriented and emphasize the importance of “giving” and “caring” to satisfy needs (Genevieve Vaughan). Thus, they share with Marxist economics the critique of profit-orientation, capital accumulation and concentration of economic power, private ownership and wealth. With Keynesian economics they have in common that they do not believe in the self-regulating forces of the market. On the contrary, they stress the need of state intervention for the purpose of redistribution, demand side management and stability of prices.
