Race and Economics

Author: Walter E. Williams
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1244-4

Walter E. Williams applies an economic analysis to the problems black Americans have faced in the past and still face in the present to show that that free-market resource allocation, as opposed to political allocation, is in the best interests of minorities.
