Green Power; The Corporation and the Urban Crisis.
Odiorne, George S.
This book argues that black unemployment and the problems of urban unrest must be confronted by business, and that the solution is inescapably a management responsibility. The author first discusses the causes and dimensions of the urban crisis, inadequacies of past and present Federal antipoverty programs, limitations of riot control and military manpower policy as solutions, and the implications of Negro purchasing power and other forms of "Black Power." He then urges the business community, not only to employ more slum dwellers and ghetto residents, but also to train them for job advancement and help them to become independent businessmen. Finally, he recommends specific policies and courses of action for corporation leaders, middle managers, industrial foremen, labor unions, and the Federal government itself. (ly)
