Saving our cities : a progressive plan to transform urban America by William W Goldsmith( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 'Saving Our Cities', William W. Goldsmith shows how cities can be places of opportunity rather then places with problems. With strongly revived cities and suburbs, working as places that serve all their residents, metropolitan areas will thrive, thus making the national economy more productive, the environment better protected, the citizenry better educated, and the society more reflective, sensitive, and humane. 00Goldsmith argues that America has been in the habit of abusing its cities and their poorest suburbs, which are always the first to be blamed for society's ills and the last to be helped. As federal and state budgets, regulations, and programs line up with the interests of giant corporations and privileged citizens, they impose austerity on cities, shortchange public schools, make it hard to get nutritious food, and inflict the drug war on unlucky neighborhoods. 00Frustration with inequality is spreading. Parents and teachers call persistently for improvements in public schooling, and education experiments abound. Nutrition indicators have begun to improve, as rising health costs and epidemic obesity have led to widespread attention to food. The futility of the drug war and the high costs of unwarranted, unprecedented prison growth have become clear. Goldsmith documents a positive development: progressive politicians in many cities and some states are proposing far-reaching improvements, supported by advocacy groups that form powerful voting blocs, ensuring that Congress takes notice. When more cities forcefully demand enlightened federal and state action on these four interrelated problems: inequality, schools, food, and the drug war, positive movement will occur in traditional urban planning as well, so as to meet the needs of most residents for improved housing, better transportation, and enhanced public spaces

Generations of poverty : America's underclass as an economic and political dilemma by William W Goldsmith( )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent upsurge in persistent urban poverty has been generated by a particular set of American political responses to structural transformation of the global and domestic economies, exacerbated considerably by a long process of highly subsidized suburbanization and racism. Persistent poverty is connected to the following structures and processes: (1) the global economy; (2) the United States' industrial structure; (3) Federal social policy; (4) urban labor markets; and (5) local politics and policy. The increasingly integrated and competitive global economy has forced U.S. corporations to search for cheaper ways to compete, resulting in a steady erosion of the power of the working man in the United States and a reduction in his standard of living. Job losses, cuts in social programs, and the replacement of community and collective interests with self-interest have worsened the situation of Blacks and Latinos, who have traditionally suffered from low wages, bad housing, and poor schools. The situation of the poor can be radically improved through a staged process of local empowerment, the formation of new political coalitions, and the consequent "bottom up" restructuring of national priorities. Statistical data are presented in six tables and 30 graphs. (Fmw)
