Reseña: “¿Quién le hacía la cena a Adam Smith?” de Katrine Marçal

Alexandra Chung


Debate, 2016. 224 pp. S/.59

A simple vista, uno puede pensar que este libro es histórico y que hace una revisión de todas las mujeres importantes e influyentes en la economía. Sin embargo, el enfoque es distinto al analizar el rol de la mujer en el mundo económico y mostrar sus diferencias con la idea detrás del denominado homo economicus. La redacción de este libro es una combinación entre ironía y perspicacia dado que aborda los temas más relevantes con humor. Además de ello, es muy amigable con el lector, no siendo necesario que este sea un economista para entender  los conceptos.

 Como ya se mencionó, un tema importante es el análisis del homo economicus, teoría que expone a un ser egoísta que solo vela por sus intereses, asocial en todo momento ¿Cuál es el problema con estos supuestos? Que no es un ser que pueda funcionar totalmente aislado pues no vino solo al mundo, necesita de cuidados.

 Sin embargo, estos cuidados siempre han sido realizados por las mujeres porque estas eran las actividades que debían hacer por el rol impuesto dentro de las sociedades. Por ello es que uno de los primeros trabajos que ellas pudieron desempeñar era la enfermería o el cuidado de niños o adultos mayores.

 Katrine Marçal detalla el cambio social y económico del trabajo de la mujer a lo largo del tiempo. La mujer siempre ha trabajado, solo que las actividades domésticas no eran y son consideradas como tal. Sin embargo, en los últimos años la mujer se ha visto incentivada a realizar estudios e insertarse en el mundo laboral, pasándose de no recibir una remuneración económica a la lucha actual por la igualdad de salarios.

 Algo que se recalca en el libro es que la mujer siempre se ha visto ligada a una imagen de protectora y cuidadora de los demás. No obstante, cuando ella decide trabajar no solo se trata de la realización de esa acción, sino que también implica la decisión de tener o no hijos, de criarlos y las dificultades que se presentan, la imagen “seria”, “masculina” que tiene que proyectar para ser tomada en cuenta en las compañias.

 Habría sido valioso que el libro tenga más ejemplos históricos de mujeres para tener una mayor referencia de la influencia que tuvieron. Además de ello, el epílogo debió ir al inicio del libro dado que funciona mejor como inserción al tema.

    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate
