197. Race and Economics

Lew Rockwell interviews Walter Williams on his two new books.

From his stepfather’s urging that he go early and stay late to his own hardworking experiences in the market, Walter Williams concludes that racial discrimination alone has never been the barrier that people say it is. In his forthcoming book, Race and Economics, Dr. Williams views minimum wage as effective racism, the Davis-Bacon Act as super minimum wage regulation, discrimination as an act of choice, and prejudice to be simply a decision made with incomplete information.
