Happy Wednesday everyone! As my Women In Economics Series continues, I wanted to shed light on the field of study itself. As an Economics undergraduate, Dr. Gita Gopinath is an important role model for me and the quote below by her really resonated.
Economics can help us understand the complexity of the world and help us tackle the most challenging problems. That’s why I love the subject, and how it complements other disciplines.
The below quote is from a Princeton University interview with Dr. Gita Gopinath. She is currently the Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund, and on leave of public service from Harvard University’s Economics department, where she is the John Zwaanstra Professor of International Studies and of Economics. Her achievements are truly inspiring.
