Economic Justice: Race and Markets Seminar / Course (3)

The course contrasts how the market force of competition either reduces or reinforces racial discrimination in the economic transactions that determine access to housing, employment, and business opportunities. It asks whether racial segregation of neighborhoods, schools, occupations, social networks is a source of extant inequality. It also asks whether the problem of societal inequality is an economic rather than a racial issue. Seminar participants will be asked whether and how the law can be used to help remedy disproportionate economic inequality in the United States.

The paper in this course can be used to satisfy the certification requirement.
