Vicky Pryce FAcSS, former Joint head of the Government Economic Service and now Chief Economic Advisor for CEBR, is one of the UK’s best-known economists. Her new book ‘Women vs. Capitalism: Why We Can't Have It All in a Free Market Economy’ will attract much public attention by presenting a strong challenge for economists and governments to consider radical policies for gender equality, based on sound economic evidence and principles, which go far beyond naïve reliance on market forces.
