Description: Emphasizing the complex economic, social, and political factors that create poverty and make its eradication so difficult, this book provides a broad overview of poverty and discrimination, explanations for these social ills, and policy options for addressing them.

Providing a multidisciplinary approach to poverty, welfare, and discrimination, this book offers up-to-date discussions of major policy initiatives, including welfare reforms, child support, healthcare, and job training. It also includes the latest statistics on poverty, welfare, and labor-market developments. The seventh edition of The Economics of Poverty and Discrimination has been revised to include a description and analysis of the new welfare system (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) that replaced AFDC; an examination of the causes in recent plunges in the number of welfare cases; and an assessment of the changing relationship between poverty and economic growth.
