Revolutionary changes in public policy have given a sense of urgency to this seventh edition of The Economics of Poverty and Discrimination. As in earlier editions, the text offers a structured, systematic analysis of poverty, inequality, and discrimination. Although economic theory provides a foundation, the text draws extensively from sociology, political science, anthropology, psychology, and law. Using this multidisciplinary approach, Bradley R. Schiller begins with a conceptual discussion of poverty and inequality, proceeds to an empirical description of both phenomena, and then offers chapter-length discussions of various causes and cures.
