This week we meet with Glenn Loury, Brown University's Stolz Professor of the Social Sciences, Professor of Economics, and one of our nation's leading public intellectuals. The topic: What Explains Persistent Racial Inequality?
Join us as we cover the following questions and more...
Is racism tribal?
Does racism impact social capital?
Does social capital impact the accumulation of capital -- human and financial?
Is inequality in social and material capital transmitted from generation to generation?
Is race-based inequality less concerning today than in 1960?
How do today's Glenn Loury's policy prescriptions differ from yesterday's?
