A new study shows a large gender gap on economic policy among the nation’s professional economists, a divide similar to the gender divide found in the general public.
"As a group, we are pro-market" says Ann Mari May, co-author of the study and a University of Nebraska economist. "But women are more likely to accept government regulation and involvement in economic activity than our male colleagues.”
“It’s very puzzling,” says free market economist Veronique de Rugy of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. "Not a day goes by that I don't ask myself why there are so few women economists on the free market side.”
A native of France, de Rugy supported government intervention (干预）early in her life but changed her mind after studying economics. "We want many of the same things as liberals—less poverty, more health care--but have radically different ideas on how to achieve it.
Liberal economist Dean Baker, co-founder of the Center for Economic Policy and Research, says male economists have been on the inside of the profession, confirming each other’s anti-regulation views. Women, as outsiders, "are more likely to think independently or at least see people outside of the economics profession as forming their peer group," he says.
The gender balance in economics is changing. One-third of economics doctorates (博士学位）now go to women. "More diversity is needed at the table when public policy is discussed," May says.
Economists do agree on some things. Female economists agree with men that Europe has too much regulation and that Wal-mart is good for society. Male economists agree with their female colleagues that military spending is too high.
The genders are most divorced from each other on the question of equality for women. Male economists overwhelmingly think the wage gap between men and women is largely the result of individuals' skills, experience and voluntary choices. Female economists overwhelmingly disagree by a margin of 4-to-l.
The biggest disagreement：76% of women say faculty opportunities in economics favor men. Male economists point the opposite way：80% say women are favored or the process is neutral.
66.[阅读理解]What is the finding of the new study?
A.The gender divide is a big concern of the general public.
B.Men and women understand economics quite differently.
C.The gap between male and female economists needs to be closed.
D.Male and female economists disagree widely on economic policy.
67.[阅读理解]What does Ann Mari May say about female economists?
A.They are strongly against male domination in the economics profession.
B.They tend to support government intervention in economic activity.
C.They usually play an active role in public policy-making.
D.They are mostly strong advocates of free market economy.
68.[阅读理解]What do we learn about economist Veronique de Rugy?
A.She represents most female economists' standpoint.
B.She devotes herself to eliminating women's poverty.
C.Her study of economics changed her view on government's role in economic activities.
D.Her academic background helped her get into the inner circle of the economics profession.
69.[阅读理解]What does Ann Mari May imply about public policy-making?
A.More female economists should get involved.
B.It should do justice to female economists' studies.
C.More attention should be paid to women's rights.
D.It should aim at sustainable development.
70.[阅读理解]On what issue do male and female economists differ most?
解析：该题考查名词辨析：选项中contradiction和conflict意义比较相近，contradiction意为“矛盾”，指的是比较抽象的，在观点上、意见上的矛盾；而conflict意为“冲突”，比矛盾强烈，而且可以是针锋相对的、公开的。由句中的never got on well in work，可以判断，两个人之间的积怨已深，因此应为B，personality conflict指“性格冲突”。confrontation对抗；competition竞争。
解析：该题考查的是形容词辨析，generous丰富的，从句意可知，这里是介绍该职位的优厚条件，因此generous salary和benefit package是指优厚的薪酬以及高福利。plentiful“大量的，丰富的”,指某物的数量多得称心如意，但较少用于描写抽象之物；abundant“丰富的，充裕的”；sufficient：足够的。
解析：该题考查的是副词辨析，根据句意“我从台湾出发路经巴黎”，因此应为B项by way of经过……。by the way顺便说一句；in the way 障碍。
解析：根据guideline的第一部分的第二点“It is, however, considered appropriate to bring inexpensive handcraftsfrom your coutry or a small gift for the children of the host family.”可以得知，我们最恰当的礼物应当是那种不昂贵的礼物，因此应为A项。其他的选项：威士忌、相机、手机都是昂贵的物品。
解析：A根据文章中我们可以明确定位到BCD内容，“With a personal trainer assigned to you…”对应C项； “Our one-on-one support and expert guidance by the top trainers in our industry.”对应B项； “For the time being, absolutely no joining fee and a very affordable monthly membership rates.”对应D项。因此为A项。
解析：由题干中的关键词Ann Mari May和female economists定位到文章第二段。第二段第二句提到，相比男性而言，女性更倾向于接受政府对经济活动的调控和干预。因此为B项。
解析：由题干中的关键词Veronique de Rugy定位到文章第三、四段。第四段第一句指出：Veronique de Rugy早年曾支持政府干预，但在研究经济学之后，改变了自己的看法，即学习经济学改变了她对政府在经济活动中的作用的看法。因此为C项。
解析：由题干中的关键词Ann Mari May 和public policy-making定位到文章第六段最后一句。定位句提到，在讨论公共政策问题时，需要有更多样化的观点，从第一段可以了解到，男女经济学家对经济政策的看法存在很大差异。由此可推断出，此句暗示应有更多的女性参与进来。因此为A项。
解析：由题干中的关键词differ most定位到文章的第八段第一句。题干中的differ most是对原文中are most divorced from的同义转述，定位句指出，男女经济学家的最大分歧在于对男女平等问题的看法。因此为D项。
