Abstract

This analysis of the landmark civil rights decision is organized in two sections. The first part presents (a) the demographic and economic backdrop of the City of Richmond minority business enterprise program, (b) an analysis of the legal theory embodied in the City of Richmond v. Croson (1983) (hereinafter referred to as "City of Richmond") decision in the context of the relevant precedents and (c) an outline of economic assumptions ofthat decision. The second section extends the economic model and delineates the probable consequences of Croson on the potential for economic development in the black community.
