Social issues in US
Pick ONE or TWO of the following and write 6-7 pages total.
1. Using Putnam and Reich, discuss what types of inequalities we find in the USA and what seem to be the causes of them? This is a big, open topic, and there is no exact answer that I’m looking for, but rather a thoughtful response drawing on the materials.
2. Race and Gender are both systems of inequality which we are looking at in this course. You can see those issues in Putnam, and we will cover them in the forthcoming week. Provide examples of racial and gender inequality, including some of the historical background, and provide some of your own possible policy options to address such inequalities.
