Abstract

This audio recording, dated 1974, captures part of a panel of speakers discussing the topic “Stagflation and the Poor.” Dr. Vivian Wilson Henderson, president of Clark College, speaks first. Henderson argues that people should not see the federal government as the culprit in the simultaneous rise of recession and inflation. He contends that the solution for stagflation is for the government to create jobs programs and, ultimately, restructure the tax code to be more progressive. He asserts that there will be social upheaval if the problem of economic class distinctions is not addressed. The recording also includes a portion of a speech by Lucille Rose, the Commissioner of the City of New York's Department of Employment.
