THE JANUS-FACE OF RACE: REFLEC- TIONS ON monetary thought Patrick L. Mason and Rhonda Williams Many economists are keen to just accept that race is a significant component in US eco­ nomic and social affairs. but the pro literature screens a unusual schizo­ phrenia while confronted with the duty of truly formulating what race potential and the way race works in our political economic system. at the one hand, race issues while the dis­ cussion is targeted on anti-social habit, social offerings, and undesired industry results.
