Last call for book purchase requests this year!

If you would like the Library to add one or more new books to stock, please contact me soon, as I am using up the Economics book fund for this academic year. You can request books useful for research or wider reading by students or staff any time; once this year’s fund is spent, I will save the requests until 1st August when more money will be available. I will warn you about any delay, but for now, there is still money to be spent! Thanks very much. Please contact Helen Riley ( for further enquiries.

Publications, Presentations & Talks

(EXAMPLE) Andrew Oswald's paper "Do Women Ask?", joint with Ben Artz at Wisconsin and Amanda Goodall at Cass Business School, is to be published in Industrial Relations: A Journal of Economy and Society.

Abstract: Females typically earn less than males. The reasons are not fully understood. This paper re-examines the idea that women ‘don’t ask’, which potentially assigns part of the responsibility for the gender pay gap on to female behavior. Such an account cannot readily be tested with standard data sets. This paper is the first to be able to use matched employer-employee data in which workers are questioned about their asking behaviour. It concludes that males and females ask equally often for promotions and raises. The paper’s empirical results suggest, however, that while women do now ask they ‘don’t get’.
