ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION

September 10, 2019 | Massive Pay and Opportunity Gap Between Men and Women is Bad Business

Danielle Park

Portfolio Manager and President of Venable Park Investment Counsel (www.venablepark.com) Ms Park is a financial analyst, attorney, finance author and regular guest on North American media. She is also the author of the best-selling myth-busting book "Juggling Dynamite: An insider's wisdom on money management, markets and wealth that lasts," and a popular daily financial blog: www.jugglingdynamite.com

While the whole world is scrambling for ways to stimulate spending and economic growth, one way remains vividly evident and yet widely ignored: equitable income and opportunity sharing between men and women.

Men are not inherently smarter, better or more deserving workers than women.  Disproportionally enriching one sex at the expense of the other is not only indefensible, but it’s also bad for business and global demand. Fixing this requires an active effort on the part of all corporations, leaders and policymakers, it’s not happening on its own.  The status quo needs to understand that it is in all of our best interests to get this highly inefficient and damaging imbalance remedied without further delay.  A stronger economy requires greater income sharing.

    What’s up with looking at the top 2% pay. How is the top 2% representative of society? (Hint: It’s not) To get 2% pay, generally, you need to spend a the best part of your life, learning the business (whatever type of business) That means getting a mentor, and putting your life on hold. And when you get your big break, into Big Time CEO-ing, the job can be 7 days a week,10 hours a day. Could it be that women, face pressures to get married and/or have a baby during the juiciest part of their working life, and thus Self-select themselves out of contention for the big money? I’ve read Danielle Park for years. All Danni girl does is complain about how the world wasn’t created to suit her. And now, she’s just another man hating fem-bot. SAD!!
