The power of parity

MGI-Gender-Inequality-US-Animated-Gif (1)The U.S. could increase its GDP by trillions if we fixed gender inequality, according to a new study by McKinsey Global Institute. From the report:

…the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) finds that every US state and city can add at least 5 percent to their GDP in that period by advancing the economic potential of women. Half of US states have the potential to add more than 10 percent, and the country’s 50 largest cities can increase GDP by 6 to 13 percent.

You can read the full report by clicking on the link above, and my apologies for the earlier broken link.
