"From Economic Dependent to Economic Actor: Tracing the Legal Construction of Women's Economic Ability" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The Law and Society Association, TBA, Berlin, Germany, Jul 25, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p182087_index.html>

Abstract: The history of the regulation of women’s lives tells a plethora of
stories, including of women’s economic subordination. But while there
are familiar legal rubrics and landmarks in this discourse, such as
coverture, Bradwell v. State and Title VII, there are many other legal
events in a multitude of economic contexts that shaped the
transformation of women from economic dependents to independent economic
actors. This Article analyzes the legal history of this transformation
and argues that understanding this history provides an essential
foundation for comprehensively evaluating both the present state of
women as economic actors and the full panoply of laws that construct her
economic life. Beyond addressing workplace equality, conceptualizing
women as economic actors compels an integrated assessment of areas of
women’s financial lives that may be subject to discrimination or
disadvantage, including in lending, purchasing and bankruptcy, as well
as in access to an array of economic-related opportunities.

Abstract: Despite the growing attention on the possible inadvertent consequences of economic statecraft in
countries under economic sanctions, the studies have largely overlooked the gender-specific
effects of economic sanctions. Because sanctions can have a devastating impact on the target
country’s economy and political stability and that women often disproportionately suffer the
effects of such economic and political shocks, we argue that economic sanctions will likely exact
a very high toll on the status of women. To quantitatively analyze the research question, we use
four different indicators to tap the economic and political aspects of women’s status across
countries. Using time-series cross-national data for the period 1981-2000, our overall findings
suggest that sanctions inadvertently deteriorate women’s status in the countries under economic
sanctions.

4. Lin, Qi Feng. "Conservation Economics and Ecological Economics: Aldo Leopold’s Unrealised Proposals to Rethink Economics" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASEH Annual Conference, Drake Hotel, Chicago, IL, <Not Available>. 2019-10-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1171318_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: During his career, Aldo Leopold (1887–1948) witnessed several cases of land degradation that were caused by unbridled economic activity. I present two sets of draft proposals prepared by Leopold for the purpose of rethinking economics along conservation and ecological principles. The first is a set of four draft prospectuses written during the 1930s to pursue research on “conservation economics.” The focus here was on developing economic tools to promote conservation. The second is a draft memo written in late 1947 to propose creating a position in “ecological economics” at the University of Wisconsin, with the conservationist William Vogt (1902–1968) as candidate. Leopold was inspired by Vogt’s work on analyzing the human-land interaction in Latin America according to ecological principles. Leopold’s attempt to engage Vogt is an example of how conservation thinking in the United States was influenced by international conservation work. Unfortunately, Leopold died suddenly in April 1948.

Leopold’s proposals to rethink economics reflect his keen observation on the necessary changes in economic thinking to align economic thought and practice with ecological principles. They also underscore his drive to transform society’s relationship with the land and enrich our understanding of his writings in A Sand County Almanac.
