A Different Vision: African American Economic Thought

by

A Different Vision: African American Economic Thought Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the civil rights movement of the 1960s, research into race relations has tended to focus on political and social inequality rather than the economic impact of racism. "A Different Vision: African-American Economic Thought" redresses this imbalance. It is a landmark two- volume work--the most significant contribution to the study of blacks and economics ever to have been published. <BR> "A Different Vision" brings together for the first time the ideas, philosophies, and interpretations of North America's leading African-American economists. Each of the thirty-five chapters presented in these two volumes focuses on various aspects of the social and economic experiences of African-Americans, past and present. This volume dramatically illustrates that African-American economists do have "a different vision," as it offers the hard, incontrovertible evidence--as no other book has before--that when it comes to economics, race matters, and that economic inequality caused by race has had and continues to have an immense impact in every sphere of African-American life. Volume 1 of "A Different Vision" includes an in-depth discussion of the economics of race and gender; an assessment of the contribution and influence of major African-American economists and economic philosophies, including Booker T. Washington, Abram Harris, and Phyllis Wallis; an examination of racism within the economics profession; and an accessible approach which is free of technical jargon. <BR> Volume 2 offers an analysis of urban poverty; discusses aspects of racial inequality and public policy, including affirmative action, and self-help solutions; examines the theory and method which underlies public policy; andstudies the impact of racism on the socio-economic status of African-Americans.<BR>

Synopsis:

This work brings together for the first time the ideas, philosophies and interpretations of North America's leading African American economists, demonstrating that racial inequality has had an immense impact on African Americans' daily lives.
