Dr. Nima Sanandaji is an author, with a doctorate degree in engineering, known for a stream of comprehensive policy reports and books on enterprise and public administration.
In his most recent report for the Cato Institute, Sanandaji outlines the effects of Nordic welfare systems on women’s careers and the mechanisms of the gender glass ceiling. While widely believed to be beneficial to gender equality, Sanandaji shows how some of the Nordic policies, such as for instance gender quotas, actually have negative effects on women’s careers. There are other reforms which have better results for enhancing women’s careers. Read the report to find out more.
