“The denial of LGBT equality is morally wrong. Lee Badgett’s superbly researched book also shows the immense economic losses that result from this inhumanity. Eye-opening in its global scope, The Economic Case for LGBT Equality is a must-read for all business leaders and policymakers.”
—Janet Yellen, Distinguished Fellow, Brookings Institution

“Lee Badgett is the premier economist working on LGBT issues today—and perhaps ever. In this tough-minded, far-ranging, and accessible volume, she crisply articulates the benefits of LGBT inclusion across multiple domains, including education, employment, and health. Along the way, she illuminates why advocates of LGBT rights should embrace economic arguments, which support rather than supplant their moral claims.”
—Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law, New York University School of Law

“One of the world’s leading authorities on the economics of the LGBT experience, Lee Badgett articulates the importance of granting LGBT community members full and equal participation in basic economic, education, health, social, and political settings. This well-written and impactful resource offers business leaders an in-depth analysis on the significance of driving LGBT inclusion in the workplace and marketplace.”
—Tony Tenicela, Global Leader, Marketplace Diversity and Workforce Engagement Services, IBM
