We Can Create Wealth
The desire for sustainable socio-economic advancement shapes the lives of all Americans. Wealth can be passed on generationally. Access to opportunity for advancement, in part, determines economic outcomes. In the United States, access tends to be distributed disproportionately between Whites and Blacks, with black having a more limited opportunity structure. Socio-economic status and racial background are often synergistic in determining one’s ability to create and maintain wealth and improve the life chances for their families to the third and fourth generation. While America is a prosperous nation, the adverse effects of poverty still remain. The pernicious social outcomes of poverty are most acute in minority communities.
