Credits: (3)
Prerequisite(s): ECON 101  and ECON 102  
Significant racial inequality in labor market outcomes and entrepreneurial success persist in open societies. This course examines the nature and extent of the disparities with a focus on three multiracial societies (Brazil, South Africa, and the U.S.). We will address issues of labor market segmentation and discrimination as well as inter-group variations in entrepreneurship with a focus on capital formation, growth, and income inequality.
