Lee Badgett: The Economic Case for LGBT Equality
3:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST/GMT-5
A Bard Center for the Study of Hate WebinarWhat is the economic cost of hate? It’s hard to focus on solutions to a societal problem if we don’t think about its costs.
The Bard Center for the Study of Hate is fortunate to have received a grant from GS Humane Corp to create an “economic cost of hate index” (led by Bard College economics professor Michael Martell).
Lee Badgett, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, is a key member of the team of experts we are consulting as we conceptualize and build this index.
Dr. Badgett’s new and highly acclaimed book The Economic Case for LGBT Equality: Why Fair and Equal Treatment Benefits Us All is one of the first and best sources about an important component of the economic cost of hate. It is both an essential contribution in its own right, and instructive as we think about how to measure the cost of other manifestations of hate.
Please join the Bard Center for the Study of Hate as it welcomes Dr. Badgett to talk about her new book.
