Markets and Malthus
Population, Gender, and Health in Neo-liberal TimeseBook - 2010
Markets and Malthus: Population, Gender, and Health in Neo-liberal Times explores the ideas and institutions that were framed at the 1994 United Nations population conference in Cairo and traces their trajectories sixteen years down the line. Why were Third World feminists profoundly critical of the Cairo consensus and process? How has the health of people around the world been affected by neo-liberal economic policies? What have these meant for women's rights, including reproductive rights?. The book presents detailed case studies from various countries ranging from India and China, to Egypt.
