Traditionally civil rights issues have been examined without an explicit application of economic principles. Such an omission prevents a more complete understanding of underlying motives and incentives. This title, however, seizes the opportunity to apply the rich array of economic tools to provide new insights to explain how, why, and at what cost individual and group-level rights violations occur in ostensibly civil societies.
Using several fundamental concepts from behavioral economics, this book creates a unified framework for evaluating civil rights issues through an economic lens and provides a blueprint for businesses, governments, and individual citizens to transform their behaviors to create a fairer and more equitable world.
Civil Rights Economics is a timely book, as recent global events have seen renewed calls for civil rights reforms within institutions, as well as calls for greater diversity of representation in corporations, protections of voting rights, and socially responsible capital investments.
Author: Christopher A Richardson, PhD is an economist with deep expertise and experience in leading complex analyses for major US and global institutions. His current interests as an independent consultant involve applying economic principles to analyze civil rights, financial risk and climate change issues.
