Suggested Readings 47 almost a monetary worth? Suppose that one day you, a white person, receive a phone call from a representative of the government advising you that a terrible mistake had been made: You were supposed to have been born black. It will now be necessary to rectify that mistake-a painless operation will be performed, at no expense to you, that will transform you into an African-American. The government is prepared, however, to compensate you for its mistake. How much would you want? Professor Andrew Hacker reports that he has asked this very question of his classes over the years and that the answers given have remained stable-one million dollars a year.
