Racism has a cost for everyone. It makes our economy worse–and not just in ways that harm people of color, says public policy expert Heather C. McGhee. From her research and travels across the US, McGhee shares startling insights into how racism fuels bad policymaking and drains our economic potential–and offers a crucial rethink on what we can do to create a more prosperous nation for all. “Our fates are linked,” she says. “It costs us so much to remain divided.” This 14 minute TED talk presents an excellent summary of Heather McGhee’s thesis about the economic cost of racism in the USA. Read her book, The Sum of Us, for our April book discussion.
