Poverty traps by Samuel Bowles( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much popular belief, and public policy, rests on the idea that those born into poverty have it in their powers to escape. But the persistence of poverty and ever-growing economic inequality around the world has led to many economists to seriously question the model of individual economic self-determination when it comes to the poor. In this book, the contributors argue that there are many conditions that may trap individuals, groups, and whole economies in intractable poverty. For the first time the editors have brought together the perspectives of economies, economic history, and sociology to assess what we know, and don't know, about such traps

Prosperity for all? : the economic boom and African Americans by Robert D Cherry( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though African American men are currently less likely to leave the work force, the number of those who do not find work at all has grown substantially, indicating that joblessness is now concentrated among the most alienated members of the population. Other chapters offer evidence that racial inequality is still pervasive. Prosperity for All? ascribes black disadvantage in the labor force to employer discrimination, particularly when there is strong competition for jobs

Resilient city : the economic impact of 9/11( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Assessing multiple facets of the New York City economy in the years after 9/11, Resilient City discerns many hopeful signs among persistent troubles. Analysis by economist Sanders Korenman indicates that the value of New York-based companies did not fall relative to other firms, indicating that investors still believe that there are business advantages to operating in New York despite higher rates of terrorism insurance and concerns about future attacks. Cordelia W. Reimers separates the economic effects of 9/11 from the effects of the 2001 recession by comparing employment and wage trends for disadvantaged workers in New York with those in five major U.S. cities. She finds that New Yorkers fared at least as well as people in other cities, suggesting that the decline in earnings and employment for low-income New York workers in 2002 was due more to the recession than to the effects of 9/11. Still, troubles remain for New York City. Howard Chernick considers the substantial fiscal implications of the terrorist attacks on New York City, estimating that the attack cost the city about three billion dollars in the first two years alone; a sum that the city now must make up through large tax increases, spending cuts, and substantial additional borrowing, which will inevitably be a burden on future budgets." "The terrorist attacks of 9/11 dealt a severe blow to the economy of New York City, but it was far from a knock-out punch. Resilient City shows that New York's dynamic, flexible economy has absorbed the pain and hardships of the attacks, and provides a thorough, authoritative assessment of what, so far, has been a strong recovery for New York."--Jacket

Contentious city : the politics of recovery in New York City by Russell Sage Foundation( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moving forward after the destruction of the Twin Towers was a daunting task, made more difficult by the numerous competing claims on the site and the varied opinions on how it should be used in the future. Contentious City brings together the voices surrounding this intense debate, and helps to make sense of the rival interests vying for control over one of the most controversial urban development programs in history."--Jacket
