ABSTRACT
The difference in the asset holdings of black and white Amen cans is startling. When people control assets, they have a sense of owners hip, power, and hope for the future that profoundly affects the way they conduct their lives. Recommendations to over- come the racial divide include public education as well as specific program and policy recommendations. Some of the recommendations call for asset building for all Americans, with an emphasis on low-income and low-wealth Americans. Other recommendations remove specific institutional barriers to asset formation among black Americans.
