S8E5: Understanding the Power of Black Economics with Britni Wilcher
What is microeconomics and what is its role in our daily lives? It is not always directly about money. If you think about the access you have and cost of your healthcare, food, employment, and housing, then you are familiar with microeconomics. From family leave policy to double work day to maternal health to childcare to wealth gap we learn how the pandemic is really having a devastating economic effect on the Black community. This conversation is a start in connecting the dots and learning the language of microeconomics. Join Terri and Dr. Dom as they lean into curiosity to learn about this topic from microeconomist, Britni Wilcher.
Quote of the Day:
" A race that is solely dependent upon another for economic existence sooner or later dies. As we have in the past been living upon the mercies shown by others, and by the chances obtainable, and have suffered there from, so we will in the future suffer if an effort is not made now to adjust our own affairs."
Tips for Changing Our Economic Outlook:
- Advocacy in healthcare
