The Cost of Racial Discrimination. Hearing before the Joint Economic Committee, Congress of the United States, Ninety-Sixth Congress, First Session.
Joint Economic Committee, Washington, DC.
This document contains the text of a 1979 hearing called to address the issue of economic disparities that exist between white and black Americans. The issue focused on during this hearing was the loss of revenue to the black community imposed by economic disparity and the imposed cost of institutional barriers preventing economic parity. A research paper entitled "An Estimate of the Loss in Potential Gross National Product Due to Existing Employment, Productivity, and Wage Differentials Between White and Non-White Workers in the United States," by Charles C. Ciccone and John D. Fisk, was submitted to the committee. Melvin Humphrey of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission discussed his research paper, "Black Experience Versus Black Expectations." Victor Perlo of the New School for Social Research addressed the reasons for economic gaps between whites and blacks in the United States and submitted a prepared statement, "Widening Economic Differentials by Race--Facts and Causes."
