What happens when one takes a look at Racism, specifically racism in the housing markets through the lens of Economics? For one thing, one gets at the root cause of the wealth gap between white and black families. The location of the neighborhood in which you grew up has a powerful influence on the trajectory of your life. In addition, there will be surprise revelations about an economist, who was honored by The Episcopal Church who profoundly impacted where we live in this country, depending on our race. After the presentation, there will be time for questions, which will hopefully include, “where do we, as faithful Christians, go from here?”.
Rich Stein, who will be presenting his research, is the Senior Warden at St. Stephen’s, Ridgefield and has his A.B. in Economics from The University of Chicago and his Master’s from The Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
