From the Back Cover:

Bradley Schiller's The Economics of Poverty and Discrimination continues to be the leading classroom authority on the causes of poverty and antipoverty options. The Ninth Edition has been thoroughly updated with new data, policy initiatives, research findings, and new issues. Among the most notable revisions are:

  • New Chapter on Inequality: This all new chapter offers a broader perspective on income distribution issues. It assesses the arguments for and against greater equality, examines alternative yardsticks for measuring inequality, and reviews both U.S. and global income distributions. In concert with Schiller's path breaking research, the chapter emphasizes the phenomenon of income mobility as the best indicator of equal opportunity.
  • Impact of Welfare Reform: The new edition offers a review of haw the landmark 1996 welfare reforms have impacted welfare caseloads and poverty. The main issues of the ?002 TANF re-authorization debate are highlighted.
  • Expanded Earned Income Tax Credit {EITC} Coverage: In recognition of the fact that the EITC is now the largest U.S. welfare transfer, the Ninth Edition offers a more detailed analysis of its income-provision and work incentive effects.
  • Legal Developments in Affirmative Action: This edition reviews the latest legal developments on affirmative action, including an-going litigation of "race-conscious" cases from the University of Michigan and the University of California.
  • Social Security Privatization: Professor Schiller emphasizes haw proposed privatization proposals would undermine the huge antipoverty effects of the Social Security system, forcing the creation of a new welfare program for the aged.
  • Expanded Literature and Website References: New references and websites have been added to every chapter.
  • New Data: All of the data in the text have been updated, including new information from the 2001 poverty census. The U.S. Bureau of the Census provided unpublished data to help complete Professor Schiller's poverty profiles.
