About this product
- DescriptionBeing Black, Living in the Red demonstrates that many differences between blacks and whites stem t from race but from ecomic inequalities that have accumulated over the course of American history. Property ownership - as measured by net worth - reflects this legacy of ecomic oppression. The racial discrepancy in wealth holdings leads to advantages for whites in the form of better schools, more desirable residences, higher wages, and more opportunities to save, invest, and thereby further their ecomic advantages. A new afterword by the author summarizes Conley's recent research on racial differences in wealth mobility and security and discusses potential policy solutions to the racial asset gap and America's low savings rate more generally.
