women and money

Chosun Ilbo and some others have carried the Yonhap piece borrowing a recent book by Kim Eun-jeong, team manager in Choheung Bank, according to which families that have the wife taking care of money have been more succesful in amassing wealth than those in which the man is in charge.

We anthros make assessments of cultures with far smaller number of informants or respondents than the 600 bank employees of this survey; the difference in numbers between succesful woman-managed assets and man-managed assets is not big but it does help to strengthen the stereotype (or cultural notion, if you like) that women are "better" with money, or more responsible.
