America's ailing cities : fiscal health and the design of urban policy by Helen F Ladd( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past two decades powerful economic, social, and fiscal forces have buffeted America's major cities. The urbanization of poverty, the shift in employment from manufacturing to services, middle-class flight to the suburbs and Sunbelt, the tax revolt, and cuts in federal aid have made it difficult for many cities to pay for such basic services as police and fire protection, sanitation, and roads. In America's Ailing Cities Helen F. Ladd and John Yinger identify and measure the impact of these broad national trends. Drawing on data from 86 major cities, they offer a rigorous and innovative analysis of urban fiscal conditions. Specifically, they determine the impact of a wide range of factors that lie outside municipal control, including a city's basic economic structure and state-determined fiscal institutions, on a city's underlying fiscal health--the difference between potential revenue and the expenditure needed to finance public services of acceptable quality. Concluding that the fiscal health of America's cities has worsened since 1972, the authors call for new state and federal urban policies that direct assistance to the neediest cities

The color of credit : mortgage discrimination, research methodology, and fair-lending enforcement by Stephen L Ross( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Their analysis also reveals several major weaknesses in the current fair-lending enforcement system, namely, that it entirely overlooks one of the two main types of discrimination [disparate impact], misses many cases of the other main type [disparate treatment], and insulates some discriminating lenders from investigation. Ross and Yinger devise new procedures to overcome these weaknesses and show how the procedures can also be applied to discrimination in loan-pricing and credit-scoring."--Jacket

Prejudice and discrimination in the urban housing market by John Yinger( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews what is known about the effects of prejudice and discrimination on the urban housing market. Particular attention is given to distinguishing the effects of prejudice from the effects of discrimination. Theories about prejudice and discrimination in the urban housing market are reviewed and tested against available evidence. Information considered includes evidence about racial residential segregation, black-white price differentials in housing, types of housing consumed by blacks and whites, and home ownership patterns of blacks and whites. Summarizations of nine studies in particular provide information about three aspects of the pattern of housing prices: (1) the relationship between racial composition and the price of housing; (2) the black-white price differential within neighborhoods; and (3) the black-white price differential between neighborhoods. Suggestions are made for public policies that would help eliminate discrimination and promote integration in the housing market. (Author/EB)

An Analysis of discrimination by real estate brokers by John Yinger( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper focuses on designing policies to eliminate discrimination in the sale of single-family houses by analyzing the behavior of the agents who actually do most of the discriminating, namely real estate agents. Discriminatory practices are said to be supported by policies of house builders, lending institutions, and government, and by the prejudice of the white majority. The paper analyzes the racial beliefs and practices of real estate brokers in an attempt to understand the economic incentives that lead brokers to discriminate against blacks. It is argued that a broker's job consists of three steps: (1) attracting customers, (2) matching customers with listings, and (3) finding financing for 'matched' customers. It is then shown that at each of these steps the structure of the real estate industry interacts with the racial prejudice of the white community and of brokers to give each broker economic incentives to discriminate against blacks. The techniques used by brokers to discriminate are also reviewed, and several proposals designed to eliminate broker discrimination are made: by eliminating brokers' control over information and by eliminating local boards' control over access to listing, one would eliminate the economic incentives to discriminate.
