Summary "Get the Summary of Thomas Sowell's Discrimination and Disparities in 20 minutes. Please note: This is a summary & not the original book. Original book introduction: Thomas Sowell's bestselling book Discrimination and Disparities is his empirical examination of how the economic disparities and other disparities arise. Different outcomes like economic and others have a big difference depending on the individuals, their groups or their nations. Many explanations about the differences have been offered by many scholars and thinkers. Some of them say that those people who have less fortunate outcomes are the victims of genetics. Some others believe, however, that those who are less fortunate are actually victims of the more fortunate. In this book, Thomas Sowell gathers an extensive selection of empirical evidences to challenge this idea. Sowell proposes that different economic outcomes cannot be explained by one factor of any of these three: exploitation, discrimination or genetics. Washington Times praises Sowell's book and describes it as "sane, balanced and highly informed."-- Provided by Freading.
