An extreme case of economic monoculture is Detroit, which has suffered severely because of the decline of its all-eggs-in-one-basket automobile industry. A diverse economy permits less painful adjustment and creates greater possibility that the next big thing is already present.” (Triple Pundit3/18/15)

 

ISSR Advisory Board member, Jennifer Lundquist's Study Provides Insight on Racial Preferences at Early Stages of Dating

"New research from sociologist Jennifer Lundquist finds that white straight men and lesbians are much more open to online interracial dating than are white gay men and straight women. Although it is commonly believed that gays and lesbians are more racially open-minded than straights, this appears to be true only for lesbians, according to the study published in the journal Social Forces." (UMass Office of News and Media, March 5, 2015)
