Dear Social Work
As the epilogue to Banking on a Revolution, this final chapter challenges the social work profession to seize responsibility for issues of finance and the economy. Finance’s outsized role in the economy and its exploitation of marginalized communities are pressing concerns, with widespread implications for rendering racial, economic, and social justice. Although the profession has, on the whole, abdicated responsibility for macroeconomic issues, social work is uniquely positioned to bring understandings of racial, economic, and social justice to bear on issues of finance and the economy. Though, it is unlikely that the profession will fully realize its commitment to justice without training and preparing social workers to do this work.
