“Disaggregation” is not a word that rolls off the tongue easily. But the concept of separating a whole into its distinct parts is one that we should embrace when it comes to statistics about minorities.

The time when it was sufficient to break out data by simple race or ethnicity segments has past. Demographics and new sociological and scientific understanding about the people that make up the broad categories of black, Asian and Hispanic tell us that these labels are becoming increasingly blunt instruments when we look at public health and education policy.

Aprender de los errores del Japón

Aprender de los errores del Japón
Spanish

Es difícil recordar ahora que en los años 80 Japón
contaba con la economía más admirada del mundo. Alcanzaría, pensaba todo el
mundo, el más alto estándar de vida y sería pionera de las más ingeniosas
tecnologías. En la actualidad, todo lo que oímos son advertencias para no
repetir los errores de Japón, que resultaron en una "década perdida" de
crecimiento económico. Los pecados mortales de Japón, se nos dice, fueron
escatimar el "estímulo" económico y permitir una "deflación" (la caída de
precios) paralizante. La gente postergó las compras esperando que los precios
cayeran aún más. Ésa es la opinión generalizada —y es incorrecta.
