An exploration of the cliometric relationship between gender equality and economic growth

Abstract:
This paper develops the foundations and the implications of the mechanisms
proposed as possible triggers for the demographic transition and the process
of socio-economic development. In particular it examines the role played by gender
equality and its significance for the understanding of the development process which
allowed economies to move out of a long period of stagnation into a state of sustainable
economic growth. Based on a renewed cliometric approach, the analysis suggests
that the rise in gender equality was a key trigger for the transition to modern growth.
