In this short talk 'Measuring the Danger of Segregation' Trevon Logan, Professor of Economics at The Ohio State University, explores the impacts of structural racism on economics and health. They further elaborate on the importance of resolving the racism problem in the discipline of Economics.
Trevon Logan is a Professor of Economics at The Ohio State University and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. Their research mainly focuses on economic history, including studies of African American migration, economic analysis of illegal markets, the economics of marriage transfers, and measures of historical living standards. In this short talk, Professor Logan discusses their research on the Reconstruction Era (1865-1877) and new measures of segregation in the US which shows the present segregation of black communities in rural and urban areas in different forms. They further explore how a long-standing body of research on diagnostic measures of e.g. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which incorrectly stated that black Union soldiers had lower lung capacity than white soldiers, continues to have an impact on the health of black communities and subsequent economic effects. At last, Professor Logan argues for an inclusive and diverse economic profession to solve the racism problem in Economics.
