Judicial Versus Legislative Charting of National Economic Policy: Plotting a Democratic Course for Minority Entrepreneurs
Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review
Historically, minority participation in entrepreneurial activities in the United States has, for the most part, been negligible or non-existent. In theory, the emancipation of American blacks from slavery should have resulted in increased opportunities for blacks to participate in the country's industrial development and growth. Although a variety of 'disadvantaged firms' have emerged since the 1970s, l purposefully discriminatory schemes ensured the exclusion of blacks and other minorities from America's free enterprise economy.
