An empirical examination of how economic and other disparities arise Economic and other outcomes differ vastly among individuals, groups, and nations. Many explanations have been offered for the differences. Some believe that those with less fortunate outcomes are victims of genetics. Others believe that those who are less fortunate are victims of the more fortunate. Discrimination and Disparities gathers a wide array of empirical evidence from to challenge the idea that different economic outcomes can be explained by any one factor, be it discrimination, exploitation or genetics. It is readable enough for people with no prior knowledge of economics. Yet the empirical evidence with which it backs up its analysis spans the globe and challenges beliefs across the ideological spectrum. The point of Discrimination and Disparities is not to recommend some particular policy "fix" at the end, but to clarify why so many policy fixes have turned out to be counterproductive, and to expose some seemingly invincible fallacies--behind many counterproductive policies.… (mere)

Discrimination and Disparities is the first book by Thomas Sowell that I've read, and I will definitely be reading more by him.

I might have been a little annoying while reading this book: around friends and family, I was self-conscious of frequently saying, "listen to this [data]!" Well, they seemed very interested, at least. It is incredibly refreshing to read a book on the topic of social conditions which is so evidence-based. Every claim is thoroughly supported by a description of evidence: Sowell is very careful that his claims are not stronger than the evidence he has at hand. As one educated by critical-social-justice theories, heavier in poetry than empiricism, I had the additional delight of learning fact-based arguments which call into serious doubt many of the dogmas I had received in college.

Of particular interest is the methodology that Sowell uses. Clear, simple, yet rigorous, it is a model that I wish more intellectuals could adopt. In the 2nd (enlarged) edition, Sowell goes into greater detail into this methodology of social research, and justifies its importance: that we should be committed more to truth and testing claims than to action and programs: for in the latter we have no guarantee of benefit and risk of harm, but in the former we can learn what really works. This simple piece of wisdom is one which might be expected to be common sense in our historically scientific culture, and yet seems to be increasingly abandoned with the spread of what I might call "post-scientism".

Also of interest is his straightforward economic analysis. Having never formally studied economics except Marx, finally reading sound economic arguments was delightful and illuminating for me. I look forward to reading more from Sowell. ( )

Liked it. Think there are some useful frameworks here (Discrimination 1 & 2). Packed with information and facts. Good. ( )
