Families at the Century's Turn: The Troubling Economic Trends. Family Review.
Lindjord, Denise
Journal of Early Education and Family Review, v7 n3 p5-6 Jan-Feb 2000
Discusses U.S. economic trends for the past century. Notes that distribution of wealth is more concentrated at top than is distribution of income, with income inequality growing worse in the 1990s. Maintains that wealth disparity explains achievement test score gaps between white and minority students. Presents proposals for asset-building, including individual development accounts, KidSave accounts, and broader employee ownership. (KB)
