Economic Aspects of Blindness and Low Vision: A New Perspective.
Kirchner, C.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v89 n6 p506-13 Nov-Dec 1995
This discussion of theoretical perspectives on disability's economic aspects urges development of better measures of productive activity by persons with blindness in paid and unpaid work; considers other personal characteristics that may account for dependence, such as old age or illness; and suggests that some costs are created by social barriers, rather than by impairments themselves.
