Getting into the Black: Race, Wealth, and Public Policy
Dalton Conley examines the causes and consequences of the black-white asset gap in the United States. He argues that it is wealth, more than any other measure of socio-economic well being, that captures the nature of racial inequality in the post-civil rights era. Conley discusses policy implications that may be used to address such "equity inequity."


Volume 101 - Number 2 - Reflections on Promoting "The General Welfare", 1986

Social Policy and the Welfare of Black Americans: From Rights to Resources
Charles V. Hamilton discusses the impact of the black political struggle on the development of social welfare policies.  His view is that "entitlement" has taken on a meaning not only of guaranteed "rights," but also of guarenteed "resources," the most important of which is employment.
