Chapter 3 defines statistical discrimination and pries it apart from nonstatistical discrimination. It then distinguishes between direct and indirect statistical discrimination, arguing that the latter is a real possibility. Statistical discrimination often appears together with other morally objectionable features, which the chapter tries to isolate from “pure” statistical discrimination. This exercise is crucial to a later assessment of why statistical discrimination is wrong when it is.
