Black Unemployment: A New Perspective
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
It seems obvious that the topic of domestic unemployment-and specifically black unemployment-should be of professional and personal interest to career Army officers. It is imperative that senior officers be familiar with the numerous domestic and international issues which affect the United States and its economy so must we grasp the interrelated nature of these issues. Certainly any issue which affects the general welfare of our country also affects the welfare of our Army. As noted by Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, Americas strength rests on the vitality of Americas economy. Once can easily term critical the task of reviving our seemingly stagnant economy, and once can just as easily place this task at the top of the list of national priorities for the 1980s. A particularly demanding aspect of our economic problems is that of black unemployment. This article focuses on that problem because of its meaning to our economy and our nations welfare, because of its effect on the composition of our Army, and because of its potential impact on the role of the Army in the next decade.
