Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An eye-opening field guide to the wealth gap. <BR>For every dollar owned by the average white family in the United States, the average family of color has less than a dime. Why do people of color have so little wealth? "The Color of Wealth" lays bare a dirty secret: for centuries, people of color have been barred by laws and by discrimination from participating in government wealth-building programs that benefit white Americans. <BR>This accessible book--published in conjunction with one of the country's leading economics education organizations--makes the case that until government policy tackles disparities in wealth, not just income, the United States will never have racial or economic justice. <BR>Written by five leading experts on the racial wealth divide who recount the asset-building histories of Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans, and European Americans, this book is a uniquely comprehensive multicultural history of American wealth. With its focus on public policies--how, for example, many post-World War II GI Bill programs helped whites only--"The Color of Wealth" is the first book to demonstrate the decisive influence of government on Americans' net worth.
