Small Business Among Koreans in Los Angeles by Edna Bonacich( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to describe the character of small business among Koreans in Los Angeles, to examine the means by which Koreans are able to enter small business in an economy which clearly is moving in the opposite direction, and to consider why it is that immigrant small business should flourish within monopoly capitalism. Korean entrepreneurs concentrate heavily in trade and service. Their businesses are small in size and rely little on wage labor. Their clientele is not confined to the ethnic community. These characteristic suggests that Koreans serve as an example of the role of middleman minorities in advanced capitalism. Three possible forces within U.S. monopoly capitalism which encourage Koreans to enter small business are considered. The first is that the system helps to create Korean small business, (1) using Koreans to play a middleman role to the masses, especially low income minorities, (2) helping to distribute corporate profits, and, (3) bearing the brunt of hostility, crime, and low profits accruing to retailers in poor areas. The second approach is to see the monopoly capitalism as somewhat porous, leaving niches which the enterprising small businessman can take advantage of. A third interpretation is that Koreans actively create small business niches within monopoly capitalism. (Author/JM)
Deadlock in School Desegregation: A Case Study of Inglewood, California. Praeger Special Studies in U. S. Economic, Social, and Political Issues Series by Edna Bonacich( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The issue of de facto school segregation in the North has now reached a position on America's social agenda equal in importance to the de jure segregation of Southern schools. This study investigates a small western city with de facto segregated schools that experienced a desegregation controversy. Inglewood, California, is a city of roughly 97,000 population located adjacent to Los Angeles. The study focuses upon events that occurred in the community between 1965 and 1969. During that period a substantial number of black students came into the school district but were concentrated in about one-third of the schools. The district encompasses only a nine-square-mile area and is fiscally sound. Technical impediments to desegregation are not insurmountable. In addition to advantages of scale Inglewood is characterized by another factor that should make school desegregation feasible: the black population of the city is overwhelmingly middle class. Yet during the period of the study the school board of the Inglewood Unified School District was not able to solve the problem. Indeed, severe conflict raged in the community over the schools until responsibility for a solution was finally given over to the courts by the school board. This book examines the reasons for this failure and suggests some alternatives that might have been chosen. It is hoped that similar suburban communities may benefit from the experience of Inglewood. In the process the authors hope to contribute to a deeper understanding of the problems surrounding race relations in American metropolitan areas. (Author/JM)
