Summary
An empirical examination of how economic and other disparities arise

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.

Discrimination and Disparities gathers a wide array of empirical evidence to challenge the idea that different economic outcomes can be explained by any one factor, whether it be discrimination, exploitation, or genetics.

It is readable enough for people with no prior knowledge of economics. Yet the empirical evidence with which it backs up its analysis spans the globe and challenges beliefs across the ideological spectrum.

The point of Discrimination and Disparities is not to recommend some particular policy “fix” at the end but to clarify why so many policy fixes have turned out to be counterproductive—and to expose some seemingly invincible fallacies behind many counterproductive policies.

I think that the basic premise is flawed.

Excellent. Thankful for authors who refuse to propagate a false narrative and instead state empirical facts.

The data of this book was great, though taking it in by audiobook was difficult. I would recommend this, in paper form, to parents homeschooling their kids or general education. Through audio, one can understand the concepts, but seeing the details would be better to take more from it.

Excellent book debunking the false narrative that the ones running this world have imposed on the masses for the past 50+ years. With all the brainwashing that we receive in school and through the media it's good to go back to the simple truth.

This book really gives you an understanding that discrimination is not a big factor in disparities. Also, gives you a look at life through an objective insight and gives you insight on why we see these disparities
