Gender, money and finance

1st Vienna Economic Dialogue

1st Vienna Economic Dialogue of the Oesterreichische Nationalbank in cooperation with SUERF – The European Money and Finance Forum and the Joint Vienna Institute (JVI).

This conference deals with selected gender-related topics in economic policy, money and finance.

  • Does gender diversity in key positions affect economic outcomes, both at the macro and micro levels?
  • Is economic policy decision-making gender specific? Are there typical gender-specific decision and behavioural patterns?
  • Would a balanced gender mix in policy institutions such as central banks make for different / better decisions, e. g. due to greater diversity of views?
  • Is risk behaviour gender-specific? Would a balanced gender mix make the financial system safer?
  • How does gender affect perceptions of economic reality, including inflation, how does gender affect financial literacy, for what reasons, and what implications can we draw from differences?
