Katrine Marçal takes a different economic perspective with a theory that challenges the myth of ‘economic man’. Expanding her idea about exactly who cooked Adam Smith’s dinner, she certainly offers feminist food for thought.
Katrine Marçal is the author of ‘Who Cooked Adam Smith’s Dinner?’ a book which discusses the politics and economics of how dinner arrives on your plate. She writes a weekly column on politics and economics for Aftonbladet, Scandinavia’s largest daily newspaper. She lives in London.
