Summary
  • "Challenges believers in such one-factor explanations of economic outcome differences as discrimination, exploitation or genetics. It offers its own new analysis, based on an entirely different approach--and backed up with empirical evidence from around the world. The point is not to recommend some particular policy "fix", but to clarify why so many policy fixers have turned out to be counterproductive, and to expose some seemingly invincible fallacies behind many of those counterproductive policies"--Jacket
  • "Economic and other outcomes differ vastly among individuals, groups, and nations. Many explanations have been offered for the differences. Some believe that those with less fortunate outcomes are victims of genetics. Others believe that those who are less fortunate are victims of the more fortunate. [This book examines a] wide array of empirical evidence ... to challenge the idea that different economic outcomes can be explained by any one factor, be it discrimination, exploitation, or genetics"--Amazon.com
